In addition, am I alone in saying this wouldn't be bad to remove from the Onshape until it's more complete, or the option to turn off is applied?
We also will likely make views of parts default to them being hidden. There are more things to add in the future, such as default options in the properties panel so users can define how they want them on views of parts. We may also deliver hide/show support for individual automatic centerlines.
Also any user with experience with complex models in other CAD systems can tell you anything where you just "show all" in a drawing view is going to suck. Whether it's dimensions or axes or whatever. There was a time in the CAD industry when people were sold on the idea that a drawing has every dimension needed to fabricate the part, and the CAD model has each of those dimensions only once in sketches or features in such a way that it would show up automagically in a drawing view. With things like complex consumer electronics or medical injection molded parts, this is impossible and a disaster.
"Critical-to-function" (CTF) drawings are all about putting only the things that are critical to be inspected for quality and manufacturing info on the drawing, and nothing else. If the system vomits annotations on a drawing, it just makes it harder to build, inspect and it costs more.
The part drawings in my industry typically start with notes something like this:
We do not need to dimension or annotate every last feature on a part.
The issue with some filleted edges receiving centerlines has been fixed. Also automatic centerlines is off by default for part views now. More to come in this area since some will want more flexibility here in different ways.
