Icons in the feature list

my second point would be: Icons before the name of the features in the feature list would improve the usability, because of renamed features it could be hard to read and find things.
The same fits for part list and assembly instance list.

    I second the motion to move the icon. Renaming without consequences is great. Is it a permanent feature?

    We are attempting as minimal user interface as possible. Given that Onshape can run on just about any platform and screen size. We want to treat every pixel as precious.

    You make a valid points on the usefulness of identifying feature types via icons. This was something we debated back and forth. So lets see how we progress. There are several thoughts on how we can add more information on the features, icons is certainly one way.
