I create a new sub-assy from an existing sub that’s near identical except for a few parts. So the new sub shares parts and also has unique parts. The way I’ve been doing this is to use “pack and go” to a temp folder with a new name. Then rename the parts that will be unique and delete the parts that will be reused. Then copy assy and new parts back into the original assy folder.
I thought that all worked fine in SW2012 but after the upgrade to 2014 some of the parts are suppressed and cannot be unsuppressed. I cannot “locate the part myself”. When I unsuppressed there is not even a warning, nothing happens. There is commonality amongst the unsuppressable... Those parts are not in the folder that the new sub is in. They are 2 folders up. How to resolve those locations?
i just noticed i have an internaly saved part in there. it would be a common part so that's gonna be a problem but i would think completly unrelated.
