    The centerlines thing is already a problem for me. Who in their right mind wants centerlines displayed by default for fillets?

    AFAIK it shouldn't be seeing fillets, but I voted up your request.

    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?
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    We have a bug fix coming for centerlines for fillets.  We should not be generating those. 

    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.

    In this case the part is imported from Creo. It's not perfect at recognizing what's a fillet and what's not. I'm sure that's part of the issue, but this should be part of the development process.

    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.  
    Thank you Pete

    I forgot to mention here yesterday that the export bug on centermarks has also been corrected.

    This sort of responsiveness is great, and unlike anything else in the professional CAD world.
    We didn't even have to wait for the next three weeks!

    In my opinion, it woule appropriate for Hiding shortcut key 'H' for hide and toggling with the 'Shift+H' to show.

    H is already used for Show Mates Mode and the Horizontal constraint in sketches though...
