add the suppression of folders

It would be nice to add the suppression of the folders. You can suppress every item in a folder, but for some reason, you can't suppress them altogether. I know that you can select multiple items using Shift+LMB, but it's a few extra moves.

    Agreed! Also, it would be wonderful to be able to suppress/unsuppress a folder from a configuration table. Of course, you can suppress each feature in the configuration table, but if the features designing an entire part were in one folder, you could create the entire part (or not) with one simple check.

    +1 on this please - because if it was configurable, it will enable features to be supressed in 2 separate configurations maybe?

    RMB suppress would nice, I think there's a IR for this.

    Seems like a logical thing to suppress/unsuppress a folder.

    I came here to suggest the same thing. Could be simple to implement and very useful. With a client looking over my shoulder, it's awkward to Shift-LMB and then again to reverse it.

    I have been using folders for mates as soon as they were made available in a configured assembly. Extremely nice to only have one folder suppress in the configurations instead of many mates. Worth an extra mate or 2 in a folder instead of trying to figure long suppression lists in the configuration.
