Editing Views in .ipn file - not possible?

When creating Views in .ipn files, using View Reps from .iam files, you get "Options" window where you can check Associative box, or leave it unchecked.

How do yo get back to this window once the view is created?

If this is what you mean:

1.) Create a New IPN

2.) Select your IAM

3.) Choose your View Rep or LOD

4.) Do your Presentation.

5.) Create your new IDW with the presentation/explosion.

 

a.) Now go back to your IPN and select a differnent View Rep or LOD?

 

If this is your work plan, you would loose your existing presentation/explosion. Currently (since IPN was introduced) you could not have multi views (IPN was released before View-Reps and LOD).

 

Just create a new IPN and select the View-Rep or LOD and use it. You can have multi IPN's in the IDW's

I just hit the same wall. We have a lot of effort invested in creating and detailing the explosions, it would be nice to change something like the color of the parts without starting from scratch.  Any ideas?

Changing the representation in an ipn is currently not possible, i posted an idea in the ideastation that has been accepted.
So fingers crossed it will make it to IV2015.
