All of a sudden I have two design trees on the left side. How did this happen?
You have a a divider bar there in the middle that you can drag up and down. I generally show the configs on the top and the features on the bottom.
I never noticed there being two trees before. Which way do I drag teh bar? Up or Down?
Good afternoon Jay,
Somewhere in the center between the two planes there is a bar, double click on that and it will disappear,
That was annoying. Didn't know which tree to use. Why would you want two feature trees?
I must have double clicked on the bar somehow to get two trees.
Seems to do this in the 2012 version a lot more, can't explain.
It is really a nice feature when you get used to it, The top can be the part/assembly features and the lower one can be the same or another tab such as configurations etc...
It's extremely handy. As I stated above, I generally set the top one to show the configs - we use a lot of them. Then in the bottom I show the features. The reason I do it that direction instead of the other way around is because the bottom pane remains the "primary" pane and a shortcut of Shift-C will collapse the tree. But it won't work in the "secondary" pane. The other reason is because I generally do more work in the tree than in the config pane and therefore I don't have to drag the bar down as far. Yes, I know, pretty anal, but a second here a second there adds up - my personal drive to always cut time out of my modeling. :-)
And, having the tree in both panes can be helpful in that I can see two different areas of the tree at the same time.
See, I didn't know you could make that go away by double-clicking. That's why I troll these groups instead of playing Farmville.
Thanks for putting that out there, John
Good afternoon John,
Could you explain one thing:
That's a typo. It should read Deadbeatfoofnitzchepunk. I'm very embarrassed.
I still don't get it
I thought it might be something between Deutch and a foot somewhere in the punk
That's a private joke between me and a friend. It basically means 'the 800 pound gorilla in the room'
