    Toolbox questions

    Garrett Holt

      Hello all-

           I have a question regarding the toolbox items and fasteners.  When inserting toolbox fasteners into an assy the bill of material descriptions are lost when the drawing is saved and then reopened on another computer after saving to the network.  We are NOT using a vault.  The tooboxes we are using are not configured heavily and standard fasteners are being used.  We only have about 6 SW users here in the office.  Are toolbox links broken when pack and going a drawing and assy and then saving to another location and then trying to open it from another computer? Please advise- I appreciate the time.

          Garrett,

          If you RC on the component in the feature manager select Edit toolbox configuration.

          This will bring up a window that will allow you to add a description.

              The discription is already there on my screen and stays on my screen; I have configured the toolbox, my question is why do the descriptions dissapear when the drawing is opened on another computer? I have pack and go'ed the drawing with the assy so shouldnt the pack and go bring everyhting with it including fasteners and discriptions ?

                  Ok, sorry.  If your toolbox is just on your local PC then all the info is being written there

                  and anyone else can not see it.  If the toolbox is on a network then it sounds like it is

                  a pathing issue in tools>options>system options>toolbox/holewizard configuration, on the other PC.
