How do you edit a part within the context of the assembly?

How do you edit a part within and assembly.  Basically, in NX, you can make the part the work part within the assembly and I wanted to know if you can do the same in Solid Edge?

select the part either graphically or from the path finder and thne select edit in place.

 

From the edit in place mode you have the opotion to show / hide previous level (Ctrl + Q)

Re: select the part either graphically or from the path finde...

When I select the part, either graphically or through path finder, edit says
it is edit in place but it switches windows to the part. Ctrl Q does not do
anything at that point.



Thanks,

There should be 2 options: OPEN or EDIT IN PLACE. EDIT IN PLACE will allow you to edit the part but keep reference to the assy. OPEN will open the part in the native part environment.

It was working for me yesterday. It seems though, that once the part is
open, I am not able to edit in place. Is that correct?

Thanks

yea if the part is open you would not be able to edit in place. SE can only give permission to one instance of the file.
