Same Part Open Twice

Question asked by Mark Dougall on Jan 26, 2016

I've got an issue I didn't think was possible. I have two files open with the same name. I noticed an oddity when I measured the part in the assembly (which is also open) and it was different to a drawing I was making (which is also open). Now obviously when I made changes to the part (sheet metal thickness) I wanted it to get updated in the assembly and then go off to make a drawing of it.

I think this happened because one part was an auto-recover of the part I was working with but I thought something like this was never meant to happen and I'd get warnings left, right and centre.

 

Can anyone shine some light? Anyone seen this before?What should I do right now? I'm a bit scared to close them at the moment for fear of upsetting the save locations.
