select owner with pull command

select owner with pull command

with the pull command it would be usefull if you could select an owner where a new part will be created.

at today its possible to type the name of the assembly you want to place the new part in, but in large assemblies this is not easy.

as a work-around i often create a new part and place it under the root, then i use the copy command to place it in the right sub-assembly because the copy command does have the possibility to select an owner.

There is a change owner command.

Or better yet, in the Structure Browser, you can just drag and drop the part into the assembly.

Gary, thanks for the useful answer, but perhaps i needed to be a litle more specific. you see with this change owner command you need to begin a second command to create the logical structure, same with drag & drop.

if you can create your logical structure within the pull command when you create a new part, that would be an enhancement, right.

Ward,

If I type in a new part name in the dialog for the Pull command, and include the name of an existing assembly, it creates the part it that assembly. For example, for Part Name I type in "/a1/p1". This works as long as assembly "a1" exists. It may not be quite as convenient as picking an assembly, but it should save a step. If the assembly path is long and I don't want to type that much, I will put the new part at the root level and then drag-n-drop it into the assembly.
