Hi,

 

While using Mirror command in assembly, how to change all mirror planes at a time in 'Adjust' column of 'Mirror Components' window for all  parts/sub-assembly to be mirrored?

Hi @aslam

 

Sorry buddy, it seems only development can change this.

Normally macros or apps can be created for steps that can be performed manually to save time involved in repetitive steps and avoid errors. This seems to be a built-in behavior that cannot be changed. I tried with multi-selecting and changing at once, including using the Shift and Ctrl keys, but it appears selection and only one list can be manipulated at a time.

There could be a completely different workaround - like grouping all required components to mirror into one body and mirroring them, etc.

 

Regards,

Tushar

Hi @hawcad,

I was talking about 'Adjust' column of the window, not 'Action' column.

The situation is, all components are in rotate mode in 'Action' column and top xy mode in 'ADJUST' column. I want to select the entire 'Adjust' column, then with RMB change all to other plane like yz plane. Is there any way to do that?

Hi,

 

I suggest using Find & Replace it works well! Smiley Wink

Hi @aslam,

 

 

 

 

I was confused by Your info about "Mirror" since when mirroring there is no question for adjustment.

 

For this situation there is only one method I have found and this is via the Find - Replace option of the RMB

Very unusual use of Find & Replace
