Already I have two issues that are problems with this maintenence pack. The very first 2 things I attempted to do. I immediately filed an IR for the first, but I don't have time to do so with the second.

@nominus38  Can you mention what the 2 problems concern? I may not want to install the MP if they'd be problems for us.

(view in My Videos)
The first has to do with inserting a part copy into a psm file, if you have the option to match the material it gives an error that no part body or whatever can be found. It's already been converted to a PR as it was duplicated immediately. The other problem I noticed is in an assembly, when I try to drag another component into it from windows explorer, it just acts weird and never brings the part or subassembly in. Doesn't happen if I bring it in using the part library function in Edge, only when bringing in from a windows explorer window.

Thanks. No worries for me with those two. Let's hope there are no others.

Wow, that's alot of issues fixed.


But being able to drag and drop from windows is a big one for me. I do everything that way. My design environment is too fluid for anything else. 


I will have to hold off until I have enough time to uninstall if there are problems. Fast projects the next few weeks.

I just tested drag'n'drop from Windows Explorer and it seems it works fine.

Tested on 2 machines with ST9MP5 and Win10.


Can somebody check this on Win7?
