The previous message was a reply to another question and I copy/pasted to the wrong post.
The edrawing view in the EPDM preview seems to be a light weight version of edrawings and is missing many of the functions of the more complete edrawings. If you have the file selected in EPDM you can open it in edrawings by right clicking and select View file.
Hope this helps.

you can also skip edrawings and go to the Bill of Material tab, and hover over the part/assy icons for each used file and get a popup thumbnail. as long as you don't have a lot of similar parts in the assembly, this should get you wnat you need.
I am having the same issue, have you found a solution?
No I have not. I checked with my VAR, DesignPoint-Solutions, and they confirmed that it is not possible at this time. Only work-around is to fire-up eDrawings and path to part/assy in vault.
May have to move away from edrawings and buy a liscnece of Autovue and see if it will plug in well.
