    Loading PCB Assemblies with similar reference designations.....

    Paul Cushion

      I have 2 PCB assemblies that were imported (STEP) through Altium.

       

      The issue is:

      Both assemblies will usually have SMT components with similar reference designators.  There is no problem opening the assemblies individually.

      But, when I open them together, the SMT components within the 2nd PCB assembly, usually take the shape and size of the components loaded in the first PCB assembly.  Is there a way to "unlink" - for lack of a better way to say it - the ref. designator names when opening both assemblies at the same time.
