Find in Browser works here with either model or vault browser active.
Here is a video clip from Inventor 2011 and Vault 2012. I changed to part component then selected a part that is buried down inside a sub, then selected "find in Browser" (sorry that it is out of the window).
I would ask what version you are using, but as far as I know, it has worked this way for a long time.
I verified that Find in Browser works in 2013 when we are Vault browser inside Inventor.
OK, My turn with the video now :
What do you think? i have installed Update 1 for Inventor 2013 today
What you see in my video is what always happened.
It is happening on other computes also.
I was suprised that you two says this is not as design.
Right at the very end of the video, you select the part in the graphics window and then you select "Find in browser". You have the vault browser displayed and it goes to that part in the vault browser.
All that looks right.... Maybe I dont understand your problem.
When you do a video capture, try to reduce the window size. It looks like your monitor is like HUGE and its difficult to see everything thats going on on my small monitor. Wish Jing would allow us to scale/zoom the view window, but we cant. Just saying.
I will upload again a smaller movie window. On my Inv Find in Browser jumps to assembly panel and I have to toggle back to Vault panel to see the status. In your movie Find in Browser jumps in the Vault browser only.
oh yes, see that now. (vid is much easier to view, btw). I would try a repair install on both Inventor and vault client.
Other than that, I dont know why the browser would jump back and forth like that. That has to be frustrating.
it has always jumped for me like that. I saw in other computers also jumps.
Thats why I asked for the vault icons to be in the assy panel.
It drives me crazy to look for it twice.
I think I found the issue you are mentioning. Refer the following image.
When you are in Vault Browser "Find in Browser" command appears Both in marking menu as well as in the Context Menu
Selecting the command from Context Menu always goes to Vault Browser. Selecting the command from Marking Menu goes to Assembly Browser.
But I see that the command is not available in the Context Menu in the Model Browser. Only available in the Marking Menu. This is different from 2012 release. In Inventor 2012, the command is available only in context menu and they behave correctly as per the Browser ( Model/Vault). I am checking about this change.
Hope the above helps.
Good, it's a bug. It means it can be fixed and it is not "as designed".
Tell Vault team over there i want compensetion for the frustation caused day by day
