Well, it sounds like you have the "Save as Copy" checkbox checked when you go to do "Saveas..." in the opened part.
In 2014, it remembers your last setting from one session to the next, so you have to be ontop of this control.
One last thing, for one of your components in your assembly-one that does not appear to have updated when you did a Saveas-select the componnet and go to component properties and check the path in that dialog box to make sure that it really didn't update the reference. If the path filename is different from the component name, then check the setting o "Update component names when documents are replaced" in Options:System Options: External References.
John, I don't have the "Save as" box checked, and I checked the box in the options section. I'm not sure what I have going on. If I look at the part properties it has the correct name, but in the feature tree it's still the old name. That's probably why SW didn't let me replace a part of the same name earlier, even though it's named different in the tree. BTW: I'm still at SW1013.
Just a stab in the dark, but you didn't happen to rename the parts in the assembly browser did you? If so, the new file name would not show up because of this.
Aaron has the right answer for you. And once you do save as please do a force rebuild to see the updated name.
If you've not have the option on then please set it to on/ticked. Then open the renamed file file, go back to assembly and do a force rebuild to fix the issue.
I'm using SW2012 but I think this might be the same. There's a setting, goto:
System Options --> External References
Look for "Update component names when documents replaced" and check that box.
Hope that helps...
Guys, thanks to all of you for posting this topic and sharing the info you have. Many times I rename filenames of components in a win explorer window, then when I open the assembly the components still have the original name.
Drove me nuts.
Your tip to check the box for "Update component names..." fixed this issue.
One thing though; every time you open SW it caches file names and path info. You won't see this take effect unless you close SW and restart it.
Unless there is a check box for this somewhere.
