Benefits and Description

Opening or switching to a simplified representation is easier:

The Redefine command is added to the Simplified Representation shortcut menu in the View Manager.

Using the dynamic preview and selection tools in the Component Chooser, you can easily define and edit simplified representations without loading models into memory.

The configuration option new_wf5_simp_rep_ui is set to Yes by default.
