Is there a way to compare sheet metal flat patterns?

Using the compare tool, I noticed it lists changes to a sketch that's on the flat pattern so I can't see it on screen because I'm looking at the formed part...

I can't see a way to switch to the flattened view from the compare tool but maybe I'm missing something?

    Onshape compare mode does not have this ability and it is clearly needed. I'm writing a story for it.

    Thanks @lana,
    I guess it would be great if it could also compare the content of the side panels (custom tables, variables, configurations, etc)!

    Agree - that would be useful.
