hi

is there a way how i easily can find a constrain between two elements of an assembly in a whole bunch of constrains?

thx

Find the first part.  Expand the
browser.  Hover over the icon of each constraint.  It will list the
other part to which it is constrained.



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

yes this helps a bit but i still can not see enough.
i want to move a subassembly but it is sticks (not grounded) and i have problems finding the responsible constrain)

thx

Expand the sub in the browser.  At the bottom
of the tree there will be a list of all constraints between this sub and
anything else.  Go through each of these.  (The internal constraints
within the sub will be nested under each part in the sub)

Are there adaptive components in the assembly? I think that will sometimes
hinder dragging.

Go for wire frame display, hover over constraint in
browser to see first selection, click to see other. Sometimes
helps.
