Display states as they relate to CG location.

As I understand it, the different display states affect the weight and CG of assemblies as follows:

 

Hiding:

- Remains in BOM

- Maintains mates while hidden

- Can select to include or exclude from assembly weight

- Hiding does not affect CG location

- Cannot be used for mates while hidden

- Faster when configuration switching 

 

Suppressing:

- Removes from BOM

- Suppresses all mates attached to the part/assembly

- Excluded from assembly weight

- Changes CG location

- Cannot be used for mates while suppressed

- Slow when configuration switching 

 

Envelope:

-    Not included in CG location

-    Not used for weight

-    Not shown on drawings

-    Not included in BOMs

-    Can be used for mates while in envelope

-    Slow when configuration switching 

 

Is this correct?
