relationships

A new feature for 2014 is the relationships folder - an occasionally useful feature but mostly just an annoyance.  Is there any way to stop this folder from automatically opening?

The relationship folder is the same as the constraint folder that was not visible by default in Assembly Mode of the browser. The relationship folder is now always displayed and it takes on the open/closed value from the old constriant folder.

If you close it and save your assembly (make sure the assembly is really dirty) the browser remembers the collapse/expand state via the View Rep.

You may need to do this in your template as well.

I will try it but the relationships folder opens after edits.  For example if I add new parts to an assembly and then edit the representations the relationships folder will open if there have been changes since the last time I opened that representation.

 

I have a similar issue with place components - it seems to randomly change between the three available options (place, place from content centre, place ilogic component).  Also when inserting a view into a drawing, once I had set the view to hidden & shaded it would remember that for as long as I worked in that drawing.  Now it reverts to show hidden lines and not shaded every time.  Not a big deal but still annoying.

"edit representation" do you mean specifically a View Rep?

View Reps are where the browser expansion state is listed.

 

Also we are aware of some issues related to LOD activation where we are perhaps expanding the Relationships folder by mistake...
