Problem editing two part lists item # order for same asy on IDW - Bug?

I thought I'd be efficient & use one assembly with a couple View Reps to represent two variations of our product. But I ran into a problem editing two part lists on an IDW file. Most of the parts are identical.


I have two part lists on an IDW for the same asy & each part list is filtered for one of two View Reps - works great!

But I discovered when I edit the item number order in one part list to harmonize with the other, the other one gets re-ordered also & no longer harmonizes with the first one.

So I'm chasing my tail on this.

Is this a bug or as planned? Any suggestions?

The two part lists are one-in-the-same.  If you change the item number in one it has not choice but to change the other as well. 


Just be careful with filtered parts list.  If you are filtering by view reps, if one of the parts is visible, it will show the quantity for the entire assembly, not just what is visible.  Hence, this warning message:
