Question about live library parts

I was wondering if it is possible to have a live .iam as a library part?  By live I mean an .iam that is adaptive and uses a contact set as a travel limiting constraint - as in a drawer slide.

I doubt it with Adaptivity, but I think you could with positional reps, if you set it all up ahead of time, or make edits and saves in a separate project that does not list the file's location as a library, then you can, but you'll bump into read-only notices when trying to switch between reps.


If I were you, I'd just create a test assembly to find out what you run into.

If you place the iam into a designated project  library folder, then you cannot make edits to the iam.
