Every time I create a new configuration in a part file, a new "Carbon Steel" appearance is also added. & I want it to stop doing that.
My default part template is configured like this:
-Default Material = "Carbon Steel"
(custom material, copied & renamed from "plain carbon steel" w/ appearance changed to "matte steel")
-Default Appearance = "Matte Steel"
(from built in appearances catalog)
-In the appearances Tab, I have nothing defined, so the model reverts to the default appearance.
-I have a single display state and it is not linked to configurations.
Adding a new configuration adds a new "Carbon Steel" appearance that gets applied to the whole part & I'd like to eliminate the need to manually remove the unwanted appearance each and every time I create a new configuration (which, my friends, is often).
In other, simpler terms. I only ever want to see the Matte Steel appearance on any part, at any time, unless I manually specify something different.
Can anyone help me work around this persistent creation of the "Carbon Steel" appearance every time I add a new configuration?
