Part copy settings

I would like to set SE so that whenever I bring a part copy into another part it is set so "automatic update" and "link material" are on by default. Is this possible?

Hi,


OK, found a way to fullfill the request

 

You have to save a part file with a part copy and a one time updated part copy as template for all new part files

You even can delete the part copy from You template file, but the option to auto update still is kept correctly

 

Works fine here for me!

 

 

PS..: of course mode is set to ordered!

That works for auto-update, thanks, hawcad. However "Link Material" doesn't stick, is there any way to make that the default?

Hi,


seems that You are right.

 

Material optionn somehow might not be saved.

But didn't it in the past?

I've never tried this before, I've always just muddled through, fixing as I go. Then one day I stop and say, "There must be a better way to do this!"
