when I open a step file I get a drawing not an assembly
that is NOT a drawing.

Are you sure you're not opening a dxf or dwg instead? That is weird
yes im sure. I can save an assembly as a step, then open it and all I get is a drawing that I cant do anything with, I cant open any parts or save any parts
I think some option button was pressed & now I cant get back, this just started happening yesterday.

Can you post screen shot of this "drawing"?
Are you sure you aren't getting a single part rather than an assembly (or drawing)?
Can you attach the original STEP file here?
Thank-you, un-checking that fixed my problem !
This isn't a drawing. Are you talking about the PN you're pointing to?
Try doing another save-as to create the .stp file but this time rename it Scott and then open it and see what happens.
