    "Parent can't change state" warning

    Sally Hoo

      Does anyone know what condition this state change warning is catching?  Can you please provide an example if you do?

       

      Thanks,

      Sally

          Hi Sally, I might be wrong but I think this warning might be seen if you are trying to change the state on a file and one of its referenced files cannot move to that state.

           

          For example if you are changing state on a SolidWorks Part, and it's reference drawing is already released and cannot be moved, that warning might show up.

           

          I beileve you get rid of this warning by:

           

          1) Open EPDM Admin Tool

          2) Right-click on a user/group, Settings

          3) Go to Reference Dialog, tick "Do not mark referenced files when changing state"

           

          Hope this helps.

           

          Kind regards,
