Recently, I opened a legacy UG/NX assembly in Solid Edge ST6. I was playing with part and face priority to see if I could do some "stretching and pulling" of component parts. I wanted to use this process to see how quickly I could make change a design and to demostrate that you can use 2D change methods on 3D parts.
I noticed that all my "imported" SE parts are all in Ordered mode. Is there a setting or a quick way to convert the import parts directly to/ into Synchronous Mode?
I am hoping that I should be able to make the changes I need with all these files in Synch mode and using face priority.

Thanks for the quick reply. I looked thru SE Options but didn't think to look in "helpers" section. I was looking in the General, Save, File Locations, User Profile, Inter-Part and Manage sections. My past experience with NX Preferences would have placed this setting in one of those categories. Thank you for pointing the way.
That appears to take care off opening the assembly the first time. I'll have to find my original UG/NX assembly and open it again.
All good....further, you could also right mouse click on the body feature, then choose "Move To Synchronous" for existing ordered imported models.

What was said by Sean is useful set up. If you already imported files in traditional environment then you can use "Convert to synch" command (Under Solid Edge App button) for batch converting from trad files to synch files.
