laurence,

    I think you could accurately say
that the top sketch, under the browser, is the master and the sketch under the
feature is the share. I think IV promotes them in the database tree when they
are shared and the feature is associated as slave to the master. Once
shared, I doubt that the one shown under the feature, even exists in the
database. It probably only pops into the browser so my dim wit can keep
track of what I'm doing.

Just a little conjecture,<g>

Something else I just noticed with a shared sketch, Delete a feature created with a shared sketch,
and the sketch is no longer shared. You cannot now re-share this sketch until it has been consumed
by another feature. Don't know the use of this, but just an observation.

style="PADDING-RIGHT: 0px; PADDING-LEFT: 5px; MARGIN-LEFT: 5px; BORDER-LEFT: #000000 2px solid; MARGIN-RIGHT: 0px">

 

So its not a copy its "exposed and reusable"
anyone got a better description?

Re: SHARE my enthusiasm

Inventor has a legacy bug in pre-R6 releases. The bug was -- The Delete
Features command does not "unshare" a sketch that becomes unconsumed. So
the sketch is left with the "shared" flag even though it's not actually
shared. I fixed this bug in R6, so this bogus "shared" flag won't be
created in R6+ models.

However, you still cannot "unshare" those bogusly shared sketches created in
a pre-R6 release. While it doesn't really hurt (as Sean said above), it
might annoy a little to some neat users like MechMan . I'm thinking
about adding an "Unshare" command only available for unconsumed sketches
with the "shared" flag. What do you think?

I'd say find some bigger fish to fry 8^) If it doesn't hurt then I can live with it.

Yep, if it's at the expense of fixing or creating other features then don't
bother. If you guys have NOTHING else to do then I'll vote for it
