Unable to checkout componant of an assembly

Hello all,

Let me start off by saying I am fairly new to Solidworks and really new to ePDM (less than a week).  At this point in time, we are experiancing many difficulties with the transition and our guys are on the phone with Dassault right now trying to figure it out.


I don't think, however, my question is related to our problems so I will ask it here in this forum.


I have an assembly checked out and open on my computer.  As I am doing the changes to the drawing that I need to do, I realize I need to make some changes to a componant of the assembly.  I attempt to check the model out but ePDM says I can't because it is open in another window.  I now have to close all my windows that have that model active (the assembly model and drawing) just to check it out.  This was not how it was in our previous version of Vault.


Am I doing something wrong or is this just how I am going to have to do things from now on????


Any help is appriciated.
