Tip: In a part with multiple bodies, use Consumed by with the By Features filter option to identify dependencies.
All documents benefit to some degree, but the most noticeable improvements are seen when working with large assemblies and large assembly drawings.
The performance improvements make some application options and document settings obsolete. The following have been removed:
Additional Browser Enhancements
Note: The browser edit box displays when selecting a constraint in an assembly browser or a tweak in a presentation browser. The edit box now displays near the selected item instead of at the bottom of the browser.

Minimum Distance and Center to Center distance now display at the same time when at least one of the following types of geometry are selected.
Maximum Distance also displays when 2 of the following types of geometry, on the same plane, are selected: Vertex, line, arc and circle.
Easily toggle between Minimum Distance, Center to Center Distance, and Maximum Distance for the distance delta value.
New Sort Option
Use the new options on the Sorts Parts List and Bill of Materials Sorts dialog box to control the sort behavior. You can specify whether to sort by numerical order or by a leading digit (string).
Inventor Connected Design No Longer Loads by Default
