Instance Pull-down for Family Table Components

Instance Pull-down for Family Table Components

When a component with instances is added to an assemblly family table, enable a pull-down menu of the component instances (similar to the Y/N/* pulldown)

Currently the user is required to manually enter the full name of the instance to be substituted.  A pull-down of available instance names would make this much easier and eliminate mis-typed instance names

Hi Joseph,

You don't need to type in the name of the instance.  If you select Tools, Replace Using, Family Table, the you get another dialog box showing all the family table members and you can select the one you want.

This is the same dialog box that comes up when you Replace a component by Family Table member, so you can Right click to show the table or even preview the instance as shown:

I was not aware of this functionality.

Not quite a easy as what I proposed, but certainly a workable solution.

Thanks!
