Here's the problem:
Consider an external file which contains many global variable names and values, to which numerous parts and assemblies are linked. Now consider a simple part driven by three global variables which is linked to the aforementioned, external file. If I simply link the part to the external file, all global variables are imported to the equations of the simple part. Should I choose to edit the values of one of the mere three driving variables, I now face a non-trivial delay while SW re-computes values for each of the global variables. Had I imported only the three driving variables and chose to edit one value, after submitting my changes, I would face only a trivial delay as SW re-computes values, error-checks, etc.
The problem is that in order to import + link only a few select variables, I have to manually de-select every other global variable. When one has a sizable list of global variables, this is a painful exercise. So, when importing global variables from a file into the a part or assembly Equations, is it possible to un-select all variables OR invert selection?
Any thoughts/comments are greatly appreciated.
