Changing from Configurations to Copies - Side Effects?

Discussion created by Andrew Carter on Apr 26, 2007
We have been using the 'create configurations / use master part file' option for several years now, but due to the way e-drawings only displays part file names, we are considering changing to the 'create copy' option.

Will this create havoc with all our legacy data? Should we create a new derived standard and use this instead after switching to the other option? Will we have to recreate all part numbers and descriptions that were in the old standard in the new standard?

I'd like to hear from anyone who has done this before and did the change go smoothly.
