Our company have changed our part number system (added a dot).
When I update the ipb file some parts lose their position and visibility.
And also the trail disappears, even that "trail visibility" is ticked. But if I unticked it and ticked it again, the trail is visible again.
This is pretty annoying and I don't want to restart from scratch every time the assembly is being updated.
the problem seems to be that i cant "Update All Components"
i got a box that says "Some update paths are not valid. Press OK to continue update".
when i press OK, nothing happens.
What doses "some update paths are not valid" means?
i have open up the assembly in Inventor and update and save it, even checked it in vault.
I've had a similar-ish problem.
I'm not sure this is of any use, but if the component is linked to Vault you can right-click it and chose Recover From Vault.
This has fixed things for me in the past.
Thanks, but i have already tried that, when try to recover from vault some of the parts loses the placement and visibility state.
If i look the browser i can see that some parts are market with a red cross and some with a pen, and in the end some parts have some kind of star, i guess that the star means its new parts?
but they are no new parts at all. just renamed parts.
I guess you also renamed the assembly file ? if so, please try below steps:
1. choose the top assembly file that you want to change in Publisher browser, right click to invoke context menu, choose "Source Files>Replace from local files",
2. pick up the renamed assemly file
3. do update
Thanks for the response.
Yes we also have renamed the assembly file. but the main problem is that some of the parts loose its positions and visibility state.
Publisher won't take the renamed assembly as the same one with previous file. That's why update don't do anything. After you recover file from vault and do update, it is processed by the old assembly file and renamed part files. this is not what you expected.
Please try my previous steps and see if it resolve your problem.
