Cycle Component Colour, small bug.

Noticed Cycle Component Colour is not working on patterned copies. You can see below all the fingers were pink the same as the longer insert. I used Cycle Component Colour to change the colour of the fingers but only one changes on the screen, all have the new colour in the browser. I'm sure if I save, close then reopen it'll be correct but thought I'd report what happens if used with a pattern.New.png

This is still a bug 3 years later, and a very irritating one at times. Any time there are multiple instances of a component be it from patterning or copy/paste actions , cycling component colour for them changes the colour for all in the browser, but all the actual components take on individual colours. fusioncycle1.PNG

Wow.  Good find.  I did not believe it, so I tried it, and sure enough, it only changes one instance.  I agree it should change all instances, in keeping with the goals of Component Color Cycling.  Thanks for reporting it.  I will create a bug for this.


[edit] bug FUS-108140 created for this.  I did notice that the problem is only for the current session.  On reload, the problem goes away.  @HughesTooling , I apologize for not seeing this at the time you reported it.  It was June, my guess is I was away on vacation...  😊

By current session o you mean logging out and back in or just an app restart?

not even that.  In my (admittedly simple) test, I found that saving/closing the model and re-opening it made the colors of all instances consistent again.  Try it, and let me know if it does not fix the problem for you.
