Inventor ETO Project Editor

Have an improve Project Editor. Let say DesignC is included in DesignB. If you include DesignB in DesignA then Design C is automatically included. Today I would need to inlude both DesignB and DesignC in DesginA. Maybe an option like (keep design hierarchy).

I don't understand exactly what you are suggesting. Can you elaborate further?

Sure... I'm using Inventor ETO Project Editor to include designs from other projects in my current project. I start with the small designs and work my way up. These designs are also projects and also have included designs in them. Let say ProjectA has ProjectB included. ProjectB has ProjectC and so on...In order for ProjectA to have ProjectC included, I need to select it. It's not automatically included even though it is reference through ProjectB. Now if you only have a few designs, that's fine! But when working with many designs, it can be annoying! I know that I can edit the .ipj file and add the reference there but it would be easier to manage it through the ETO Project Editor. Hope that's a little bit clearer! Regards, Luc
