SW Drawing Limitations

Ok, now that I have been developing drawings out of SW for the last 8 weeks, I can say that it has more limitations than I expected.

 

Many times I am looking to dimension a variable fillet and the drawing cannot pick up on it.  I end up putting a note that is referenced to an edge for a quick fix.

 

In an assembly drawing, if I section it out, why cant I control what components are shown in the section view without affecting the main view?

 

If i need to hide an edge, I have to suppress it in the model, why not just the drawing?  Well what if I dont want it suppressed in the other views?

 

I have a sketch in a part I want to show in the assembly drawing but cant because in the assembly feature tree for that part, I can not expand it

 

and my list goes on......  I have spent more time trying to figure out how to make the drawings than I have creating them......(breaths sigh, gets more coffee, straps on his office chair and gets back into the research)

 

rant is over....for now
