ST9 Replace psm and default search is "Top Level Assembly document"

When I replace a par or asm in an assembly it automatically searches those file types. When I try to replace a psm it defaults to Top Level Assembly document. Is this a bug or is there someplace to set that search option?

That's interesting. I can confirm that is the behavior for me as well.

It has been that way for many years, as long as I can remember.

Re: ST9 Replace psm and default search is "Top Level Assembly document"

No, it was not that way in ST8. I've swapped out lots of psm files without having to manually select psm.

Re: ST9 Replace psm and default search is "Top Level Assembly document"

Wouldn't it replace that part for whatever assembly you are doing the work in? Would you want it any other way?

 

Just to confirm, Lets say you are replacing an assembly that is part of another assembly, you would expect it to stay as a sub part of what ever sub assembly the original part was a member of rather than what is open at the time of replacement.

@12GAGE, it seems to ONLY affect "PSM" files, when wanting to replace them, in an assembly. Works perfectly if you were wanting to replace every PSM with an "Top Level ASM"every time, but that is not how the other auto-selects are working.........clearly a regression in ST9, that needs to be logged with GTAC.

Maybe I didn't explain well enough. If I have an assembly that has solid .par parts, sub-assemblies and .psm sheet metal parts and I click on a .par and "Replace Part" the folder it opens will automatically list any .par files in that folder. The same happens is I want to replace an assembly, it will show me only assembly files in the folder. In ST9 if I click on a .psm part the default search extension comes up "Top Level Assembly document" not Sheet Metal Parts (*.psm).

So how does it get logged with GTAC?

Hi Charley,

 

Contact your reseller [VAR].....and they will log it for you. This is the only formal option to those of us outside of USA, short of a Siemens employee picking it up from the forum and processing it.

Used the Help Pull Down from inside Solid Edge to log GTAC.
