Toggle Tangent Edges - Part Studio

I've been looking - but I can't seem to find a way to toggle off tangent edge display in the shaded mode for my part. Just to be clear - this is the part studio, not drawing mode.

    Camera and render options cube, then 'Shaded without edges'

    Is that what you want?

    Not quite - I do like the rest of the edges, I just want to toggle the tangents off.

    not possible at this time.  You could vote on this IR although it started as drawing request, the discussion includes part view.

    Or start another Improvement Request.

    I voted the IR up.

    It'd be nice for edges on dark parts invert and show a lighter edge. That way we could use dark colors for our parts. Spaceclaim did it and their color palette was great. Most CAD systems make you use lighter colors for parts because the edges are always dark which disappear as the part color darkens. Please, invert the edge color based on the part color.
