Flat pattern not showing in view palette for drawing (using formed sheet metal piece that was broken into 4 using Split)

Good morning.  This is kind of a continuation of a post I had yesterday but different issue.  I used Split to break an entity into 4 parts.  The part was sheet metal.  For the parent part, I can "flatten" each part and create the resulting dxf.  But when making a drawing, I have no option for the flat pattern view.  Is this not possible when sheet metal is combined with the split function?  Please see below.  My post from yesterday was here: Split line not working for splitting simple formed piece into 4 parts

 

I've seen this before with the flat pattern option not showing as a choice in the view pallette (but could fix but unsurpressing flat config etc) but I'm working with both split lines and sheet metal combined so maybe I'm doing something wrong?
