There are defiantly some things about ipns that make them a big hassle to
use. They definitely need improvement. (Not saying Bill wasn't doing his
job - I just didn't know ipns were his job)

Please let us know who inherited IDW's? And where are they? :smileywink:

I get the same problem when in IDW. when i insert an assembly, the

assembled parts are all the same colour, but when i open the assembly

everything looks fine. JP

Are the colours in the assembly or in parts? If in parts they should show
up. If they are in the assembly save a design view (with a name like
colours) with the parts you want visible and the colours that you want.
Then apply the design view to your IDW view. select the view and right
mouse button RMB apply design views. Select your design view and the IDW
you want it applied to. This should work. It is more complicated if there
is an IPN in there.

It gets worse. If I make an IDW of a two color part it comes through OK.
If this two color part is used in an assembly and I make an IDW of the
assembly the colors are lost.

See CF for an example...(in a min)

Sean - I was only looking at the *.ipn - I'll look at the *.idw and I will
make sure that if it doesn't work in the drawing, it will be made known.

I know of internal responsibility changes which will augment Bill's
announced departure that I'm not at liberty to discuss in this forum.
Suffice it to say that a pretty high-powered team is being assembled to
tackle opportunities remaining in the areana of drawings.

Also recall that this area is intended to be a peer-to-peer discussion group
and you should not necessarily expect product designer participation from
all Autodesk pd's like you have seen from Bill and I. There are members of
the team who chose to participate and who contribute when they can - however
I think you would all agree that rather than having 100's of developers
reading the 300 to 400 posts here each day - you'd rather have them writing
code?

I agree to a point, but over the years I have noticed that the ones that do
occasionally drop in and check the Pulse of the newsgroup tend to be the
ones I have the most respect for. They "Appear" to be the ones most
interested in hearing the situation from the trenches, and fixing the
problems they might not hear about otherwise. I have seen a number of
enhancements or bugs fixed directly from a developer paying attention to the
newsgroups every once in a while. That is not to say the others aren't
doing just as good a job, but we like to know we are being paid attention to
once in a while

IMO one of the best at paying attention to what is happening in the outside
world is still working on the other program.
