selecting a draft feature on the model

Hi all,

 

I am realizing that the Draft feature in SWX is pretty bad and is hopefully getting worked on fro the next release...  I am slowly learning how to deal with the lack of preview (read -> Quality, Visible, Useful preview).

 

My question comes from my frustration with selecting a face on the model and SWX telling me that it is "Boss-Extrude18".  So I think, "crap, I forgot to draft that surface."

 

But, I actually DID draft that surface.  If I don't double check (somehow - not easy), then I could end up drafting a drafted surface making two draft features on top of one another.  I have stumbled on this error working on other peoples' models.

 

The other problem with this is that "Boss-Extrude18" is not next to the draft feature on that face.  They are separated in the tree by 30 or so features.  How can I find that draft feature?

 

I want to click on a face and learn what draft feature it is.  Any way to easily do that?

 

How about feature numbers?  There are instances (like during a rebuild) when SWX tells me what the feature number is.  I would love to be able to find "feature 56" easily in the tree to see what feature the rebuild is taking so long with.

 

OK - so there's two questions here.  Bonus to you if you at least acknowledge that there are two questions...

 

Thanks in advance!

 

-Nate
