In a large assembly, when I click on a part it shows the assembly it is in, in the designer tree. How can I change this to break down the tree and show the part I click on?
You need to find and click on the sub assembly then click and it will show
Yes I know it does it in the sub assembly,But when im in the full assembly, I click my part I want to change but it only highlights the sub assembly in the designer tree. It does not hightlight the part in the desinger tree. I dont know why it wont hightlight the part when I simply cilck on it in the graphics. My co-worker solidworks does it fine we both have 2015 we both can have the same project opened. His will break it down to the part, in the full assembly mine only shows the sub assembly it is in. I dont know if there is a setting for this or not.
Check this setting:
Tools - Options - System Options - Feature Manager
"Scroll selected item into view."
Here is where you want to change that :
EDIT- What you need to select is the Selection Sets turn it to show, I forgot to highlight it....
Got it. THANK YOU!
My SW is part clicked is part selected in the tree.
If I'm understanding your OP, then your SW is behaving as if you right-clicked on a part and selected "Select subassembly".
I tried Mr. Cyganik's and Mr. Stoltzfus' suggestions, but neither changed my SW behavior to your OP.
I've always been part-click part-selected, which is prior to selections sets in SW (mine's set to automatic BTW).
Just a guess, could if have something to do with your large assemblies settings? Are the parts not getting resolved?
Are there feathers in your tree?
No feathers in my tree, the options setting needed to be turned on "scroll selected item into view". It is now showing the part in the tree I click on in the graphics window.
