Represent for Part drawings


We've just discovered that Views > Represent is not available in Wildfire... You're meant to use simplified reps or family tables instead...

This seems like a step backwards. Especially since you can't create a drawing view of a part simplified rep! - You have to create an assembly with the part simp rep, then display the assy in the drawing... a round-about way of getting a simplified view.

Also, family tables add another inconvenience when working with Intralink.

Does anyone have any effective suggestions for creating simplified views of parts (eg: suppress some milling details

from one particular view)

Are you sure there is no new funtionality that made Represent obsolete. Have you tried showing a part Simplified Rep in the drawing?
