Add an option in parts created from derived components to replace the derived component.
This is a good suggestion, I do this now with an iLogic rule, but it would be nice to have it built in.
Dim oDoc as Document
oDoc = ThisDoc.Document
Dim oRefFile As FileDescriptor
Dim oOrigRefName As Object
For Each oRefFile In oDoc.file.ReferencedFileDescriptors
'get the full file path to the original internal references
oOrigRefName = oRefFile.FullFileName
'present a File Selection dialog
Dim oFileDlg As inventor.FileDialog = Nothing
oFileDlg.InitialDirectory = oOrigRefName
oFileDlg.CancelError = True
On Error Resume Next
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
ElseIf oFileDlg.FileName <> "" Then
selectedfile = oFileDlg.FileName
‘replace the reference
oOrigRefName = “”
iLogicVb.UpdateWhenDone = True
Workarounds are not a solution. I just came here looking to post this same idea.
