A long list of new improvements to show you with this update, including some highly requested features from our users. Let's jump in.
- NEW Feature list icons - Icons make it easier to distinguish between sketches and features in your feature list, or parts and assemblies in the instance list of your assemblies.
- NEW Up to vertex end condition - A new end condition in the extrude command that allows you to define the depth of your extrude by the location of a vertex or mate connector in your model.
- IMPROVED Highlighting - Highlighting has been improved with this update to be more pronounced.
- IMPROVED Section views - The direction of section views in part studios and assemblies can now be flipped by left-clicking the section view arrow.
- NEW Rename keyboard shortcut - Shift + n is the new keyboard shortcut for rename.
- NEW Insert image in drawings - Images can now be inserted into Onshape drawings. Useful for inserting company logos, bar codes, etc.
- IMPROVED Drawings note editor - Drawings note editor improvements include a new "Insert field" dropdown to insert linked fields from the drawing, and formatting options to format these fields.
