recognizing all 3 entities in a mate reference

I am trying to mate two assemblies with a mate reference and I can only get the first mate out of the three to work.


In both assemblies I create a mate reference with the same name and the same number and type of mates:

1. concentric 2. coincident (to end face of cylinder) 3. coincident (to center plane for orientation, in this case necessary)


When inserting assembly A into an assembly C which only contains assembly B so far, the software only recognizes the concentric mate.


Does anybody know how to get three mates in one step with one mate reference?


Also I would like to know if I should get a feedback (pop-up window) from SW if it recognized the mate reference and it's single entities. Is there anything like that?

I found something on the web (see attachment), but it didn't give further details.


I'd appreciate your help.
