Detaching a drawing from a Project

I cannot seem to detach drawings from a project. The directions state:

To detach a drawing from a project

1.. In Toolspace, on the Prospector tab, right-click the drawing you want
to detach.
2.. On the shortcut menu, click Detach Project.
This does not work. The only options I have are "Open" and "Refresh". I've
tried from within a drawing in the project and drawings from outside the
project and in both cases it does not give me the "Detach Project" option.

Kevin,

After you create a project, you can attached a saved drawing to the project.
If you select the Master View in Prospector, you can see the drawings that
are attached to that project. You can open the selected drawing by either
directly opening the drawing or by selecting the drawing from the Project
drawing collection, rt . click, and open. It looks like if you open it
using the second method, the "Detach" option is not on the right click menu.
If you browse to the file and open it, the menu is correct. I will log
this issue.

thanks,

Kevin,
The Detach Drawing option is only available for drawings located under the
Open Drawings collection, not at the Projects Drawing collection.

The Detach Drawing command that can only be used on the "Active" drawing
session (assuming that the "Active" drawing session is attached to a
project).
