If you have the "sheet metal" add on you can have a bent view and a flat view. If you are doing a drawing of the part first import the part (either bent or flat) the you have to select it and convert it to a sketch. Make sure you do all your editing and annotating before you convert it into a sketch. Then you can change you part to the opposite version and import it into the sketch. Hope this helps!
