Ignore simulation results during Copy Design

Status: Accepted
by Contributor HE_mcollet on ‎02-11-2013 06:41 AM

When running a Copy Design on a file (say an assembly), if one of its dependants (even if not copied) was used for simulation, the simulation result's files are copied to the temp during the Copy Design.

It sometimes results in an error stating "The specified path, file name, or both are too long", and the Copy Design cannot be done.

 

Could the simulation files be ignored during Copy Design?

In the Copy Design dialog you can change the settings not to include the attachments.

In the attached picture you can see my settings AND what's displayed in the Copy Design preview.

The part will not be copied because the function tries and makes a copy of ALL files in the temp, and it ends up with a path too long........

The simulation results are preventing other functions (like dwf publishing with Jobserver) too. There really should be some way to exclude them from a lot of things in Vault...
