I'm using ver 2013, and can't figure out why when I edit the COUNT parameter, it does not stay. i.e. when I hit OK and come back in, the COUNT value has been cleared out.
I've reinstalled 2013 and tried again, same thing. However, under the Multiple Catalog, the COUNT value sticks.
This is from Pat Murnen as a temporary workaround:
You can manually add the Count information to the component using the following steps –
1. Select the Xdata Editor from the ribbon - Projects tab > Other Tools panel > drop-down
2. Select the component
3. Select Add New
4. Enter VIA_WD_CNT as the Name
5. Enter a value
7. Save Changes
I didn’t do much testing beyond running a Bill of Materials but this value should work as if you entered it on the Insert/Edit dialog (although it still does not show up on the Insert/Edit dialog if you edit the component again). It does appear to stick if you edit this component and change other values on that Insert/Edit dialog.
I was able to reproduce this issue and logged it in our tracking system.
Sorry for this inconvenience,
I have attached a file to try as a potential fix for this issue. To test it follow these steps:
Please let me know the results and if you have any problems with this file. If there are issues you can copy your backup file into the folder to revert the changes. If all is well then feel free to use this file until an official service pack or hotfix coems out.
No actual code changed, just a small change in the dialog box definition. So the chances of it breaking anything else are pretty slim. If anything it might not be enough change and may not fix it for every possible variation of that dialog. That is what I would watch for.
Anyway, keep me posted.
