Catia V5 threaded parts

I've been messing with CATIA for quite a while now. Never bothered me, but still:

Can I highlight in any way a surface that is threaded. Somewhere in the options maybe?

Autodesk Inventor shows all threaded parts with a picture texture of a thread.. cool effect. For me a distinct color would suffice in CATIA.

Until now, i color each surface manaualy where i put threads inside holes or outside shafts. But for imported files.. idk, is there any way to highlight automaticly all surfaces that have threads?

Accepted answer

There is an icon in the Analysis toolbar (bottom of the screen) for Thread-Tap Analysis. You click it to highlight any external or internal threaded features on your part. If you look close, it also tells you the thread size.
