Adjustable assembly won't show all items in it

Hello,

 

I made an adjustable assembly of a hydraulic damper.  I have two styles of end fittings on the damper - one set made of metal, and one set made of plastic.  I added the plastic ones a few days ago.  In the main assembly I wanted to use "show all" on the damper assembly so I could see if the plastic fittings would hit anything but they are not visible.  Is this a bug or WAD?

 

Can only see metal fittings in main assy.Can only see metal fittings in main assy.Both fittings visible in subassy.Both fittings visible in subassy.

Actually, it's a much worse problem.  Once I zoomed out, I saw the plastic fittings - floating in space nowhere near the damper.  Their locatinon is fine in the subassembly model, but completely messed up in the main assembly.  Here's a picture of the problem:

Hi Kyle,

 

I would suggest you log an IR so it can be investigated to see if it is a bug or not.

Hello,

 

The assembly started behaving.  It must have been something that needed activation.  In the pictures above, I'm pretty sure I activated the parts, but I must have missed something.  I'll try to replicate the issue before I file an IR.
