"Component is Reference - only" hidden in drafting

Hi,

 

I am using NX11 and TC 10. 

I have added few assemblies consisting of 100's of componentes in DRAWING specification, but when I am adding the BOM it is selecting all the parts from the navigatior. I am not able to make the components as REFERENCE ONLY because it is hidden. How to activate the option of "Component is Reference - only" in drafting environment.

when do you have this dialog in the drafting application or in modeling application?
Some settings that are affecting the assembly structure are only possible to edit when you are in modeling and not possible when you are in drafting

Thank you Ruud Van den Brand

Understood, so any other alternative?
I don't want to use EDIT LEVEL command in the part list and deselect 200-300 parts.And I am not using parasolid reference because most likely the model geometry keeps changing and this way I can avoid replacing parasolid every time.

you can also set an attribute in the part properties to ignore in parlist.

Hi @SD1325,

 

You cannot make a 'component' one-level-down from the specification a Reference Component.  Add the assembly to your master model as a component and you will be able to use this option.
