    Breadcrumbs for lightweight components

    Dinesh Martien

      I've noticed that in an assembly, breadcrumbs do not appear when selecting a component that is lightweight. Is this what others experience? Too bad, because breadcrumbs are quite handy.


      I can understand that the full feature tree of a part is not available in lightweight, but it would be nice to at least access, say, the subassembly that a part belongs to through breadcrumbs. This could save a lot of trips to the feature manager.

      To the documentation folks: if it's true that it doesn't work for lightweight components, the documentation should probably be updated. This confused me for a while because the documentation says "Breadcrumbs  do not appear when a PropertyManager is displayed, when you select an annotation or dimension in the graphics area, or if you multi-select entities." but there is no mention of lightweight.
