component operations merge grayed out

Trying to merge two parts and finding that component operations, merge pick is grayed out.

Creo 2.0-m140, license PROE_Flex3c

Do I have a config option that's interfering?

Found the problem thanks to a suggestion by Ron Grabau.

default_ext_ref_scope was set to None, setting it to All fixed the issue.

I need to make a mapkey to toggle this setting.

There can be quite a few config options that affect this, I went through this with PTC support ~10 years ago. I made a config file called merge.pro that has every reference scope config option (they may have added some new ones since then):


allow_ref_scope_change YES
default_ext_ref_scope ALL
default_object_scope_setting ALL
default_object_invalid_refs COPY
ignore_all_ref_scope_settings YES
model_allow_ref_scope_change YES
scope_invalid_refs COPY

Is it possible to write a macro/utility/mapkey etc in WF3 to extract a part name parameter and then use that text line to name individual files in an export file set (step, igs, pdf) automatically?
Thanks in advance Jeff Dayman
