Better Integration with Inventor Publisher

Status: Accepted

Hello,

     We are just starting to use Inventor Publisher, and I've found that the Vault integration is a little too simplistic.  Currently I can't use the Where Used tab on a component or assembly to see if it is used in a Publisher document.  Also, I can't use the Uses tab on the Publisher document to see the component files.  Doing a Copy Design on an IAM file should give the option to also copy the Publisher document.  Basically, Vault should work with Publisher the same way that it works with Inventor.  It will be hard to control a revision scheme to Publisher literature documents if I can't use Vault to check against the component files.  I may do a dimensionsal change to a component and have no idea that component is used in a Publisher document.  Now my literature is incorrect and nobody has any idea unless they open the Publisher file.  It's a problem that I can easily see happening.
