I can zoom to them individualy, but even if I zoom out until they disappear the other parts aren't even in the window. The mates are all still active so I don't understand. Is there a way to "recall" them all? Using SW 2011.Thanks.
My first thought was that the mates were suppressed, but if that's not it then I don't know. Have you tried a ctrl+Q rebuild? Do your components show up as fully defined in the tree (no ( - ) in front of the file names)?
I tried to rebuild, but no change. The components were not fully defined. I ended up starting over with an older version and it only cost me about 30 minutes of work. I spent longer than that trying to figure it out but got in a hurry. I would still like to know if there is a way to regroup everything in case it happens again. I wish I had saved the one with the issue and I could have posted it!
If the part's locations weren't fully defined, then I don't know. Inadvertent mouse click and dragging might be one possibility. I always mate components as I go to prevent that from happening.
