I'm not sure if you're following these steps (it
doesn't sound like it), but this is the correct workflow.

 

1) Open the file (we'll say it's an
assembly).

2) Switch the browser over to File Status. 
Check-out the assembly and any parts you wish to modify.  You now have
exclusive modify rights to this file.

3) Make the necessary modifications.

4) Save the file(s).

5) Switch the browser over to File Status
again.  Check-in the file(s) that have been modified.

6) Close the assembly and Inventor should not ask
you to check anything out.

We
can but our company still does not allow files to be copied to other locations
for editing purposes. They need to stay where they are originally located so
that is why the shared mode needs to be used. Either way the checkout/checkin
process now sucks. Either way I still cannot just do a simple save without
having the checkout applied. So how in the heck do I check in files and save
without it re-applying the checkout? Evidently I have you guys stumped because
you are focusing on whether or not I am running in semi-isolated mode or not.
That doesn't matter. Both modes have the same issue. How do I just save
without applying the stupid checkout? What a piece of junk this new mode
is.

That's the whole point of this system. You can not
just save, since you do not have exclusive rights to the document. Someone else
could be editting the same part at the same time. One of you will overwrite the
other. You should check-out the documents when opened!  However, to go
along with what you are saying, this should be an option when opening a drawing,
not after it's already open. Even a simple check-box would do the
trick.

Also, if you are editting the assembly, why aren't
you checking out the assembly? You should check out the whole tree if you are
changing something that will affect the whole assembly. Again, this is because
someone else might be making a change that could affect you, or vice-versa, and
you will screw each other up. This is the point of this system. It's not billed
as a true PDM system, only an aid. Quit saying it sucks, and learn how to
benifit from it.

Agreed.  I would argue that the
methodology in prior releases was flawed, not Inventor 6's.

Now I see where I am going wrong. I tried everything you listed but after check in I was thinking I had to save the assembly to retain the check in state. Just doing the check in and closing worked. I open the same assembly back up and the stuff is still checked in. Its confusing because any change you normally make in an assembly needs to be saved to have it stay. Thanks for the clarification.
