You can click the add revision row(s) icon multiple times, it will give you a new row and a new revision number.

Inventor version 11 or Inventor 2008 maybe? :smileywink:

edit: it looks like it was Inventor 2008

As far as changing the rev level in the iProperties, when you "Add Revision Row" or "Add Revision Row(s)" does it go to 4? I think you will find that it will give you a 3.

 Indeed it will increment off of an internally stored number that we can't access, so you're correct it would go to 3 again.

("Add Revision Row(s)" gave me a little false hope with the "(s)". Doesn't that make you think it would let you do more than one at a time?)

You can add multiple rows using Add Revision Row(s) the button in the dialog, by clicking it multiple times.


Then you could select the intermediate rows and right-click, and then choose Visible in order to toggle off their visibility:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,

I was exiting the dialog and right clicking, I honestly must have had like a blind spot or something. I did not see those and/or was absolutely certain they were not what I was looking for when I was trying to figure out a better way to do what I was doing.



I think "(s)" implies that you can do many with one click - you don't need it to say that you are allowed to click it again, do you?
