Feature Tree Folders

left_sideleft_side Member Posts: 3 PRO
I made a product request regarding Feature Tree folders to organize the tree.  I like to work on an aspect of a PartStudio and then put sketches, planes and other features associated with that aspect in a folder and then label it, Aspect A.  This allows me to easily find things within the feature tree.  I was able to do this in Solidworks and it greatly helped me navigate the 50+ sketches, planes and features.  My blood pressure rises a little bit when I have to navigate through the feature tree and look for the particular sketch I need to update.  

I thought I would throw this out there to help Vote Up this feature.

    That is very cool. Thanks!!

    I also want the ability to organize in folders.  One example is with Grouping in an Assembly.  Instead of taking all the parts and surfaces that make up the assembly and condensing them into a folder in the tree, it creates a Group down farther in the tree.  It makes scrolling up through the tree a real pain...

    This is the #1 requested feature for Onshape for 3 years.  Clearly it is not going to happen.  I'd be happy with simple twistys to collapse sections like they do in assemblies.
