Reference Part

Hi users -

I want to know what the difference is between a reference
part and a reference model. When I create a mfg from scratch
I get the option of assembling a ref model,workpiece,Mfg
assembly or general assembly. The other day I created a
mfg using the save a copy command because 2 parts were similar
except for minor changes. I renamed everything using the new
part name. Now when I try to assemble my model my only option
is a ref part. It seems to work fine but the model is at the bottom
of the model tree and I can't move it ahead of the toolpaths. Also all of my toolpaths are associated with the workpiece. I also lost the ability to create a new workpiece.
This hasn't happened before so I wondered if anyone else has had this problem.

Thanks,Rob
