When I save as copy and open, then make modifications to the assembly the original assembly is also altered, why is the save as copy function not disassociating references like it used to on SP1?
I've never seen changes in one Assembly being duplicated in another Assembly. Edits to Parts or sub-assemblies used by both Assemblies will be reflected in both Assemblies however, which is expected behavior. Can you be more specific about what changes you're making?
If you are running "Save as copy and open" on an assembly, you need to be aware that this ONLY creates a copy of the assembly file. NOT the components that are in the assembly. So if you are making changes to the components after the save as copy function, then it will affect both assemblies.
The proper way to make a copy of an entire assembly is to use pack and go.
