Hello

I  just made a copy of assembly in Design Assistant.

I opened the copied assembly in Design Assistant to make some changes.

Parts are accessible but I have only "Clear" option possibe.

Please advice the possible reasons why?

It is likely that your  _ASSEMBLY folder is a Library.

Check your Project settings, and if you have to make changes to a Library, use a suitable project (the one specially set up to enable changes to Library parts, with CAUTION).

The assembly file does not belong to custom library.

If it even does I could not copy it from the beginning. As you can see I do copy of assembly and than open this copy which has accessible but not editable parts. The Standard Parts (library parts) are not accessible at all (grey).
