I am guessing that you are clicking/right clicking on the Flat-Pattern Folder and not expanding that folder and clicking/right clicking on the Flat_Pattern1 feature within it, but I can not say for certain. Below is an image from the third page of the tutorial where the description of Flat_Pattern1 indicates how to access it and Unsuppress it and I've shown the FeatureManager tree on the left expanded and the menu that you get if you right click on the Flat_Pattern1 feature (with the unsuppress button highlighted on the context toolbar a the top of that menu).
Is this perhaps the issue?
Did you find the "Flatten" button from the sheet metal ribbon toolbar? That should toggle your flat pattern feature suppressed/unsupressed.
Ms. Carrie, Thanks for replying. I did find that later on in the tutorial. I am getting somewhat frustrated with the tutorials but find sometimes that when I can't find things I need to take a break and then I can find them or figure out a workaround. I appreciate your helpful spirit. Thanks/regards, Glenn
..if you have not had a chance to find/add it.. here's the icon..
Thanks for the tip, knowing that functionality will come in very handy.
Mr. Jim, Thanks to you as well. You are correct. I am obviously on the steep part of the learning curve and greatly appreciate your help. I hope that my questions will grow more observant/intelligent as I become more familiar with the detail of the software. I really appreciate your kindness.
