I have a mapkey that I created several months ago that allows me to unlock my generic, go into the family table, select 'edit' and pick 'check out entire family table' from the pulldown menu. The option for 'Check out entire family table' was the third option in the pulldown list (this is important in the next paragraph)
I've done some investigation into my config file and in my mapkey that I created to check out entire family tables. I noticed a line in the mapkey code that reads: Activate 'storage_conflicts' 'Resol3';\ The 'resol3' is the important line. Since the 'checkout entire family table' option was third on the pull down menu, in the 'conflicts' dialogue box, my mapkey is overriding the pulldown menu and forcing it to pick what would be the third option, hence the 'Resol3' in my mapkey code.
The reason this happens, even though my mapkey unlocks everything, is that the parts are still 'in session' so Creo still thinks they are locked and does not give me the option to check-out the family table. One way around this is to use the 'File' pulldown menu, go to 'update' and update all. However this takes a long time and since my mapkey still works, that is my solution to this problem.
I'm trying to see if there is some option or setting that can be changed, so that I will get the 'check out entire family table' option back. And I will post on here if I can find something to help. I guess I'm just lucky that I had made that mapkey!
