Part copy- ST8 MP9, where's material link?

I don't see the choice to link material when doing a part copy now. Anyone else notice this, or did it move somewhere with the latest maintenance pack? I now have the choice to copy colors..............Smiley Sad

I see it so it must be MP9.

Part Copy must be placed in the Ordered environment (no associativity in Synch...) and it must also be the Base Feature (if other bodies already exist in the file then the option is not available).

That's the way I use it, but I don't see the button to activate linking material now that I'm on ST8 MP9. I looked again, must be something with the base feature. I'll do more investigating.

 

Thanks!

We're on ST9 now, but, it appears to be functioning as expected.....

You still get the link material button in synch but not link file.

It's there is Synch, but since there is no associativity it does not actually "Link" the material, it is just copied at the time the Part Copy is created.

That wasn't really the question I don't think, but, yep, of course.
