activate a part in an assembly, dont see features

When you activate a part in an assembly, can you see the features of that part in the model tree?

Right now when I activate, everything else transparents out, and the activated part gets a little green star in the symbol, but I can't select any individual features and the part doesn't expand in the model tree.

Is there a config setting?

Hello David

Model Tree is controlled by configuration opt: mdl_tree_cfg_file path to cfg file

Tested tree.cfg file you can find in the attachment.

Transparent models in asembly mode (in active state of part) is controlled by configuration opt: dim_inactive_components shaded_only (default opt) - set it on never (does not gray out inactive components).

David,

you have to change model tree settings (turn on feature visibility) to be able to see features in model tree in Assembly mode.

Also, you can save model tree settings into the file and set config.pro option MDL_TREE_CFG_FILE.
