Editing a Content Center part

I have a part published in my content center that was not authored with Tube & Pipe connections. I was wondering if there was a way to edit that part and re-publish it, or would I have to delete it from my Content Center.


I'm running INV 2011

Try this:


Open From Content Center, as custom, and save it in a working folder somewhere.  Open the part or ipart (whatever it is), perform the authoring steps for tube & pipe and save. 


Edit Content Center, right click on the part and select Replace Family Template, then point it to the part you just authored.  This SHOULD do the trick.  I've never tried it on a part that was not authored in an attempt to add the T&P authoring.


This will work for the original post,... jacoj, were you trying to do the same thing?
