I have an older Assembly that has the layout icon . How can I find what sketch the assembly is referencing so I can remove it?
Then it sounds like the sketch has already been deleted. Selecting Delete from the drop-down should make that icon go away.
Do a pack & go and then try this first - just to make sure it's not connected to another part etc...
Right Click the Assembly in the Feature Tree and select "Purge Unused Features"
Was thinking the same thing because it looks like the sketch is missing.
If you find that there is nothing connected then I would - Right Click the Feature Tree and..
I'd never used a Layout sketch before, but I did some playing around and found the following. Expand your Mates folder and you should see some Layout mates. Click on one of them and the layout sketch entity involved should highlight. That will let you know which sketch is the Layout sketch.
Right-click on it and choose "Layout" from the drop-down (I know there's a "Delete" option there, but it won't work).
That puts you into "Edit sketch" mode. Delete everything there, then hit the "Layout" icon at top right.
That will effectively delete the sketch, and the Layout Mates will disappear from the tree, but the icon will still be at the top of the tree. Right-click on the file name and select "Delete...". The "Layout" icon will disappear.
Someone else that works with these more may have a simpler answer, but if not I hope this will help.
I don't see any "layout" in the mates folder but I can right click the assy and choose to show, unsuppress or delete the layout. It isn't a big deal as I'm trying to help trouble shoot this file because it ran into a migration error moving from Smarteam to SW PDM.
I think I'm ok for now but wanted to see what options I might have.
