I add parts to the assembly through the "Component Structure Editor", and they seem to be added to the assembly (they are in the list of parts on the left), but I can't make them appear at all even by checking/unchecking the 'hide' tick. I tried everything I can think of, but the parts simply don't show up in the assembly. Help?
Thank you both! I was using the Structure Editor because that is how the uni explained to do things (we are making a South pointing compass on Solid Edge). I managed to figure out that the thing wasn't working because I hadn't selected "Add as real component" while adding the components to my assembly.
