I often use toolbox components and it turns out I often observe an undesired behavior. Once I have inserted a component from the toolbox I normally can right click on it in the feature tree and click "Edit Toolbox Component".
Now it turns out that in some cases (I have not been able to identify which exactely), solidworks asks me to record a separate part for the toolbox and no longer references the element in the toolbox but the recorded instance. Because the component is no longer referenced from the toolbox I can no longer right click and "Edit Toolbox Component".
Any idea of what is going on?
PS: I use SW 2012 x64 SP3
