Cannot resolve location on some parts in a copied assy…

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.


Better way?


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.
