Cannot Insert Assembly due to Custom Library

Whenever I try to insert an assembly that contains parts from my own custom library (not located in the same file as the assembly) I recieve an import failure message stating that it can't find the part.  However, I can open that part from the library location just fine in publisher.  Is there a setting I can change, rather than having to copy all my parts into separate folders everytime I make an assembly?

Are you using the "project file" option from the Insert dialog?  The "Options" button is only enabled once you pick the IAM file.

No, I didn't use that.  Thank you for pointing that out.  Is it possible to assign a project after you have inserted an assembly?

Glad to help.  I know it's not obvious -- that's why I mentioned it.

 

The project file is ony used at import-time.  Once the assembly is in, it's in.
