Starting with Creo 7 you can apply Flexible Modeling to multibody parts. Also, Flexible Modeling tools Remove, Mirror, and Pattern support reference selection from a single body only.
Note: You can use pattern and symmetry propagation methods in supporting features to propagate changes to pattern and symmetry members across different bodies. Also, you can perform searches within all or selected quilts and bodies from the Geometry Search Tool.
