Selecting faces vs part

64 Views, 1 Replies

I'm running 2012, and once in a while while in an assembly, I can no longer select the part in the display (alike to selecting the part in the browser) and instead can only select faces of parts. I think I minght be hitting something when I right click, though I'm unsure. Anyone know what I'm doing or how to reverse it? thanks in advance.

Sound like you have changed your filter for the Selection Tool. From the Quick Access Tool bar, select the Selection Filter Drop-Down list and make sure you have "Select Component Priority" selected.
