I made a new part and saved it to my desktop, I am not trying to check it into pdm standard vault and it will not let me. Does anyone know why?
if it is not letting you do something that you are not trying to do, all is good, right?
but, it is very unlikely that your desktop is part of your PDM vault. step one is to move, or save-as, to get the file into your vault view. (if they followed best practices when setting this up, it is most likely at C://<vault name>/)
