Okay I know this is simple. I know how to go from part to drawing, BOM to part, but when I have the drawing open is there a simple way to open the part?
Right click on the part in the drawing and click the folder icon in the shortcuts at the top of the menu.
Thanks, right there in plain sight!
No worries. It happens to all of us. I got my CSWE 2 months ago and just learned of multiple mate mode last month and last week learned the part to drawing shortcut. Previously I was using Ctrl+Tab between screens in SW.
Yeh, that's what I was doing too. I knew there had to be a better way.
Right click the Drawing view and select Open "Part" from that menu.
And if you are on a recent enough version, the icon is also in the left-click popup.
Also, you can also get to the part from the drawing's FeatureManager - expand the view in the sheet and the part or assembly is right there now just RMB on it and open.
