I am running SW 2013 SP5. The issue I am currently running into is several-fold and possibly related. Perhaps someone here knows how to address the issue? I have an assembly in which I am merely trying to show multiple options to a customer, so I have a few configurations.
-One problem I have is when I manipulate the assembly in any way, and then switch to a particular configuration, the software seems to want to set the visible state on two parts as hidden. Those two parts are part of a pattern that is suppressed in another configuration.
-The second problem, is that when I switch configurations, SW does not perform an automatic rebuild. Is there a setting that changes this? If so, I can not find it. I am having to manually hit Ctl-Q each time. Until it rebuilds, several components do not properly update their position, and several patterned components do not properly propogate. During my presentation, I do not want to show things all out of whack every time I switch to a different design option.
