I have created a mirror of a part. Because the parent part has the P/N engraved, I add a family table to the parent with a lone instance with _MIR suffix and with the P/N feature suppressed. I use the _MIR instance to create my mirrored part.
The problem is that the mirrored part will not regenerate with changes to the parent unless the _MIR instance is opened directly. If I make changes to the parent generic and open the mirrored part and regenerate, the changes are not reflected (see what I did there 😁) in the mirrored part. I have to open the _MIR instance.
Is there a way to have the mirrored part automatically open the _MIR instance to check for changes? I'm afraid that changes aren't going to get propagated to the mirrored part.
I do not get the behaviour you describe. Maybe because on my system, upon changing the generic, the _MIR instance is automatically "verified" and updated. Then, the saved-as-mirror copy of the _MIR instance is also updated...
