Family table instances become standalone parts when saved during assembly use


When using family table instances within an assembly, the assembly requires that the instance be checked out in order to perform a save. The instance is somehow being modified, perhaps by dependencies, or otherwise. Once the instance is checked out, and the assembly is saved, the instance is no longer a part of the family table, and becomes a stand alone part. This is causing major issues with family table versions if the instance then gets checked in.

The S741.prt instance disconnects itself from the family table when the assembly using the instance is saved. During the example I've only done an edit definition, without changing anything, in order to save the assembly. I cannot figure out why the behavior to modify any of the parts used in the assembly is happening, as nothing has changed.



Has anybody else run across this at all? We are using Wildfire 4.0 M200 and Windchill 9.0 M050.

renaming parts outside of a PDM system

I have some parts sent to me from a vendor that I would like to rename
(so it's easier for me to identify). When I tried renaming I get this
error...



"Attempt to rename a PDM object

You may not rename an object that is managed by PDM from Pro/Engineer.
Perform the rename from with PDM."





Anyone have any idea how to get rid of this? These parts are obviously
outside their PDM system and will not be returned to them...
