PTC strikes again :-(

PTC= persistantly terrible coding
In previous version of Pro 2000i^2 , 2001 they had drawing
functionality called "represent" in which you could hide features
of a part in the drawing without actually supressing the feature in
part mode. Now in Wildsputter 2.0 they've gone and done removed
that option , perhaps in efforts to re-sell it to us as a new
'enhanced' module.
Anyways, what are your workarounds to make a drawing of a single
part, yet have features within the part hidden in drawing, but not
surpressed in the model.
In assembly drawings you can pick a simplified rep, but not for parts,
which is why the old "represent' was great.

I know in 2001 you can go to views>display mode>member disp and then blank a member in a single view or all views. Maybe this hasn't been removed from WF?

Don't know anything about 'represent'ing. The only way I've found to get rid of part features is with 'View>Drawing Display>Edge display>Erase line'. I thought that, since you're able to create a part simplified rep (with features excluded) that this should be available in the drawing. Alas, I've not found a way. It seems to recognize only assembly simp reps. I'm waiting for WF 3. Maybe SloBurn 10 or BarelyGlowingEmber 15.

You must'nt have been the only one that complained
I never even knew that was there. I'll have to check it out in like
years when we switch to Lack-O-Fire 3

Did you notice the three (a..-) holes in the new logo? For marketing, sales and support, obviously. The code is not crappier than what everybody is now used to (aka the "good enough" quality approach).
