Adding features to sheet metal flat pattern

Could anyone please advise me how to bring up the update video on adding features to flat pattern in sheet metal please.
Been trying for a while now without success. It may have been included in a webinar which would also help.
Regards Brian

    What features are you trying to add? Right now you can place sketches on the flat pattern use the extrude feature.

    You click on 'Sketch' to create a new sketch, open up the flat pattern view and click on one the flat pattern. From there you can sketch profiles and use extrude to perform cuts.

    ^ To add to this, once you've sketched on the flat pattern, extrude can perform cuts AND additions to the sheet metal model.

    Thank you, I have first drawn sketch , then gon to sheet metal, thickend it 2mm . Opened flat pattern, then opened new sketch on pattern and tried to
    extrude cut, or add hole but this does not seem to work. Could this be because I am using Safari browser, or am I making the wrong approach.

    Can you advise please Brian
