In previous releases of SOLIDWORKS, the “Feature Freeze” bar would experience issues if it encountered a folder where the features were in chronological order.
This limitation has been addressed with SOLIDWORKS 2018 so that the Feature Freeze bar can force a temporary “unabsorb” of a sketch or feature so that it can freeze the desired folder.
A warning message will prompt you that you are going to perform the temporary separation of the sketch away from it’s feature.
The behavior has been aligned with how the Rollback bar functions within the Feature manager design tree.
