Editing BOM while keeping links - saving strategy

Question asked by Joe Dunfee on Apr 17, 2009
Latest reply on Apr 17, 2009 by Joe Dunfee
I am editing the BOM Table of a large assembly. Because many of the properties of a part are not filled out, I wish to do so on the BOM. (note that the info is actually in the file name of the par, which I have temporarily showing on the BOM).

This is a drawing that regularly crashes, and also one that takes a long time to save. So, I am faced with the issue of both needing to save the file regularly, and suffering with long save times.

2 Questions;

- When I edit the property of a part on a BOM, while maintaining the link to the part, when does that edit get saved to the part?

- If SW doesn't save the edit right away, is there a way to force this type of edit to save to the part right away,and not need to save the entire drawing?
