Alternate Assembly Icon is blank

Hi,

 

I decide to start a new inquiry.

 

Could you please to tell me why in some assemblies the New Alternation Icon is blank ?

 

I spotted that in a few ASYs.

 

Thank you,

Hi,

 

if you have mirrored parts, alternate assemblies is greyed out.

It is disabled for various reasons:

  • you are editing the assembly in-place
  • the assembly has been edit-opened (selecting Open on the context menu for a subassembly)
  • you are in the ERA environment
  • you are in the XpresRoute environment

To expand upon Greg's response:

When you open alternate/Family of assemblies from a drawing or a higher level assembly, it will only open that instance or child member and will not allow you to edit any or all other members.  If you want to edit all members close the file and reopen it via the open dialog box.  Now these icons should be available.
