When I initially generate a child from an iPart factory, the thumbnail in Windows Explorer for the child looks like below. Windows XP. Any idea how to fix this? Alex

I am guessing that is the way it was saved. Opening the file and just adjusting the view isn't enough change to make it save a new preview when you save. You can force a new preview by opening it, right click on the name at the top of the browser and select properties. In properties go to the Save tab, and select active window, then capture button. -- Kent Keller Autodesk Discussion Forum Facilitator "Alex Alexander" wrote in message news:40daec31$1_2@newsprd01...

Yes, this type of thumbnail occurs on every iPart I make though. Because these children are saved in a library, I can't edit the properties and Save Preview without a hassle. I'll post a reply if I find a fix for this. "Kent Keller" wrote in message news:40daf38e$1_3@newsprd01... > I am guessing that is the way it was saved.

What the "below" refers to?

Isn't the thread is devoted to problem of thumbnail for active meber being saved to each member (existing for ages and at least in Inventor 2012)?

Have you found solution for your problem?
