I have been able to Pattern Assemblies and change an instance of that pattern to Independant in the past.
I am trying to do just that and the option doesnt show up when I right click.
Does anyone know of a time when this would happen, or is having the same problem with a posible solution???
Solved! Go to Solution.
I am using 2012.
I have herd that you cannont make independent a pattern of a pattern... any thoughts???
This time I am not working in a pattern of a pattern, but in my pattern there is an instance of another pattern and I am not trying to make those independant.
I know this is getting confusing sorry!
I just tried this in beta2 build and I see what you mean. If you have a simple one level pattern you may make any element (not element1 because it is the source) independent. This is what I originally put in back in R4 or so.
Now that you can do patterns of patterns (added 2010?) that gets blocked for the top pattern AND the pattern-ed patterns...
I don't know why off the top of my head.
let me send an email to the guys who did pattern of pattern and find out for you (and me)
If you could please find out why if you have a pattern that has sub-assemblies and other patterns in it we cant take one of the sub-assemblies and make them independant.
While you're at it Steve.. Find out who I've gotta screw to remove the limitations on patterns into browser folders.
We understand the restraints we put you under with some of our folder/dragging limitations unfortunately.
It is always front and center in my mind and others that have worked on the browser for years.
Enabling this is not easy for a variety of in depth technical reasons and that is why it wasn't done initially. Our browser controls compute order and other things that are easily broken if we allow full control over location.
We won't forget about this one but I cannot honestly say when we can supply an alternative.
Steve, while we got you why is it so hard to rename a pattern in the tree. I really like to rename my patterns so I know hat part they are tied to.
