Hey I finally got around to using "Infer Imates" and I like it 8^) It is so nice that
the whole iMates thing is working now. No visibility issues. The only thing I have
noticed is it sometimes seems to take Waaaayyy to long when creating a imate on a single
part. The last insert iMate I just did on a iPart nut took over 30 seconds easily. Just
before that I pushed a imate up to a part and it was almost instantaneous. Seems
backwards ??

Anyhow good job guys. I just need a quicker way to put them on all the library type parts
now

Reading about imates and learning how to use them is on my "to do" list.
Now that the glyphs' visibility issue is fixed. When I get to that "to do"
list is another story.

Something that would make iMates more usable IMO. When inserting a part with imate(s)
and there is no mating imate, have the part attached to the cursor with the iMate active.
We could then throw in a bunch of bolts simply by picking the iPart, sliding over the
hole, dropping it off, and another would be there ready to drag and drop on the next hole.
Similar to Drews Rivet Gun for MDT 8^) We really need a tool like that IMO
