clone problem

Pioneer

I must be doing something wrong with the cloning, i didn't notice this in 8.5

When I add an assembly to clone, I go to the naming tab and set replace, say with my old job number, and replace with, my new job number

Now I go back to my main tab and click exceptions because there are usually a few parts that I did not add job number to like the customer part file etc

Everything is set to default and the default action is to clone

I used to highlight the files I want to change, and with the pull down set to retain, I click apply and those highlighted files would change to retain and all would be good

Now when I hit apply it changes 80 percent of the files to retain, not just the ones highlighted

An I doing something wrong here

Could someone else confirm that this is happening to them, or is it just me

Hi Brian, I am having the exact same problem now and just saw your post. Did you ever find a solution? I am on NX8.5.3.3

 

thanks

Without seeing the assembly structure and clone log/reports.

I would guess other components are changed to retain because their parent parts have been changed to retain.

 

ie. a sub-assembly changed to retain will force all components to retain.
