What does the < > mean in 2015 cut lists? It doesn't appear to be anything related to my feature tree.
Just a second ago, the order of < >'s in the attached picture was 1 1 2 3 1 2 3 4... now it has changed to 1 1 1 2 2 3 3 4.
Well the number in the bracket I thought was just so the feature tree didn't have the same name, kind of like bossextrude1 ...2 ...3
The next number is how many parts are in that folder which are the same parts.
Are you first 3 parts identical??? I imagine the brackets and parenthesis are just for cosmetic reasons to see them easier because you have two numbers next to each other.
All bodies are actually different. When I F2 on a description in the tree to rename (as your picture shows) and click off, I now get told the name already exists and get tossed into an endless loop until I ESC out.
We use property tab builder to input descriptions, and then the following document setting pushes the description to the feature tree....
In the first picture of this post, the "BOTTOM/SIDE PLATE" was created with property tab builder; It goes to the tree just fine (except it keeps the < > ). If, however, I go to the cut-list properties and enter the descriptions that way, it is not copying to the feature tree.
I'll play around with it this weekend and see if I can recreate it. I have never noticed this so I am worried my file may be corrupted. I hope not...
Well... I am not sure why, but I just deleted and re-updated the cut list, and it renamed all items 1-8 and is acting as it should. I believe you are correct about the < > just being there to differentiate between cut list items. I assumed the < > would show up in the cut list properties description field if that was all it was, but it doesn't.... oh well, all is good.
Thanks for your assistance!
Np, I was scratching my head on that one.
