Hello Solidworks Forum,


I have a "small" problem with my current Toolbox/Feature Library setup, and hopefully you might have an idea how to fix it?


Currently I have a part with 173 configuration, which I have created using MS Excel. I have added a ConfigurationPublisher to the part, so it is easy and convenient to find the correct configuration when creating assemblies.

I have also used C:\...\SOLIDWORKS\Toolbox\data utilities\sldsetdocprop.exe (Set Document Property) to add the toolbox icon to my part, which I think is nice. So fare so good.


Usually when you use a Toolbox part you are prompted with ConfigurationPublisher. When you have added the correct toolbox part, you can easily add multiple instances of the part by holding down Ctrl and drag a part into the window from your FeatureTree.


The problem I face is that ConfigurationPublisher ALWAYS appears when adding a file using the Ctrl+"drag'n'drop", which is pretty annoying. So how do I get the ConfigurationPublisher to behave like SolidWorks build-in Toolbox?
