When opening a top assembly I have the "Place button" and can place new items into the assembly.
When I open a subassembly from within the top assembly, the place button is greyed out.
When I open the same subassembly directly, not having the top assembly loaded, the place button is back again.
This is a new fenomenon for 2014 and I cannot figure out why the place button suddenly greyes out.
I do not run Vault client although it was installed. The problem remains after having uninstalled the Vault client.
Post a screen shot of both the top level and sub level, with the Place button showing as well as your assembly browser window.
Are you running the latest SP of 2014?
This may be an a known issue. You might want to check the list under SP 1.0 to see if it is listed.
