We just upgraded to ST10 late last week. Some users are seeing a problem with assemblies where they single left click on a component in the pathfinder as you might do if you wished to look at related constrains for example. However, instead of just hilighting the component and showing the constraints and the two ribbons that pop up (edit in place and move) it immediately inserts another instance into the assembly. Mine did it yesterday but not today so far but two others are complaining today.
I have a vague impression that I've heard of this here but I'm not certain and can't find anything related in searches. Does this ring any bells?
Edit: Since I just discovered that we have the Win10 Fall Creator's update is it probable that this is being caused by the resultant slow dialog generation?
Solved! Go to Solution.
@bshand Yes, this problem was mentioned on here within the last few months. It is a royal PIA.
However, I don't think it is an ST10 problem, unless it has gotten worse in ST10. I have had the problem on ST9 and possibly even back to ST8.
@rehenryjrInteresting. What's your Windows version?
We've never seen it here until this upgrade to ST10 which coincided with the Win10 update. The full Win10 update occurred despite my wish and warning to only allow security updates.
Does anyone know how easy it is to roll back to a previous Win version?
@bshand I am currently seeing it ST9 w/ Windows 10 (no Fall Creators Update) now and I previously saw it on Windows 7 w/ ST9. I have ST10 installed on Windows 10 with a dual install, but I have not spent enough time in ST10 to see if it is the same or worse.
It happened to me just this morning when working on a fairly large assembly.
Something is definitely different in the later ST versions. I do not ever recall this happening a few versions back.
@bshand You jinked me. I had never experienced that. Then I opened an assembly, created a part in place, returned to assembly and went to select the part to delete it and BAMB! It created another copy of it!
@RyanM, Aha! Same happened to me when a user came over to complain about it. Hadn't seen it until then.
Anyway, I posted an IR, just got off the phone with GTAC and it is indeed the friggin Win10
1706 1709/16299 update.
I assume you have that?
Although @rehenryjr's experience would counter that theory.
I definitely saw this on Windows 7, no doubt about it.
As you can see below, I am not running the Fall Creators update. However, I am running Windows 10 Home on this laptop, not Pro.
