I have a part in an assembly. I always know whether it is fully / partially / over constrained with the 'f' or '-' or '+' in the name of the part in browser tree.

But apart from this, is there any explicit way to know what are the allowed DOF for a partially constrained part?

I know i can use Move/Rotate component, but i would like to get DOF as symbols or something like that. FYI, i remember years back when i was using inventor, i had such option of showing the DOF of parts in assy.
