How to update all snapshots in Publisher 2013

346 Views, 7 Replies

Using Inventor Publisher 2013 R1.

 

If you select all snapshots to be effected and make a change to a snapshot, Inventor Publisher indicates with a lightning bolt that all snapshots require updating.

One must double-click each slide to update. This would be tedious for larger storyboards.

 

Save, close, and reopen the publication does not update slides.

 

Is there an easier way to update all snapshots?

 

 

Regards,

 

Jerry

I'm pretty sure there is no way to update all snapshots.

 

However, you also don't have to double-click or be in the snapshot to update it; just click the lightning symbol.

Thank you, Bowen192. That is a time saver. Now only half the clicks required. An "Update All" command could be useful for large storyboards. 

 

Had WikiHelp worked reliably I might have been able to read about that lightning bolt icon.

Thanks again!

 

 

Kind regards,

I happened to RMB on the the Storyboard button and discovered a way to update all snapshots.

Good find.

Beware. I lose all my part number callouts after doing the snapshot update i.e. adding a text watermark in every slide WHY!!!! ARRRR!!  Plagued with this very issue in 2013 now also in R1+SP1. Spend more time fixing my projects. :smileyfrustrated:

Yeah aware of that but still does it. Thanks. I've learnt to do all I can to the slides then ONLY as the last step & happy with everything before video output that I go and "label" the parts. Text box is another that seem to just want to change its size/proportion on its own when you reopen a saved project- thats another rant for later.
