Select Other part disctimination

Status: New Idea
by Valued Mentor on ‎02-15-2013 02:33 PM

It would be handy when using the Select Other drop down menu to have not just the type of feature shown but also which part that feature is from.  Sometimes I have identical mating faces but the design intent is for the next part constraint to apply to a specific part, not just a specific location.

I wish they put it back the way it was. Hate this drop down list. I was real good with the old way but this just takes to much time.


I guess Autodesk is not selling Inventor will save time any longer..

You can still just cycle through the options with the mouse wheel, no different to the old method

The drop down took some time to get used to and I do feel it's a bit more clumsy than the old left, right arrow.  I often find that it's in the way of what I'm trying to see and I have to zoom a bit or grab the list and move it.  I don't remember having this problem so much with the arrows method. Maybe a combo of the two methods would help, as I have noticed a lot of complaints about the dropdown.  Just put two arows next to the drop down.  Let the user decide which to use.
