Anytime I right click on a part/assembly, select the "View Mate" command from the fly out menu and try to edit one of the mate my assembly turns transparent. Is there any way to not make my assembly transparent when I do this?
Just in case this was missed.
I don't believe so, you can get the basic result you are looking for though by selecting the PropertyManager tab at the top of your assembly tree and then clicking on a component (or select a component and then select the tab works too)
This will list the mates applied in the assembly for the selected component.
