Flex Circuit Design in SolidWorks

I have created flex circuit outlines and modeled them in sheetmetal so I could bend the shape to place into an assembly. But now I would like to design the shape, represent the pads and if possible a few critical traces in the flat condiction and then put in my bends to check out how everything fits so i can make alterations before sending this information out to full PCB design. The problem is that so far the only features I can find that will process through a bend operation are holes or through cuts. Has anyone found a way to place geometry or sketches onto a surface and then have it continue to show after making a bend next to it?
