Compare to Part Structure does not show drawings?

So...

 

In the "Compare to Part Structure" tool you can select in "Preferences" -tab

"Include related information to compare:

- Documents

- Replacement Parts

- CAD Documents"

 

The last one sounds like it should work the same as in Structure viewer ie. it shows the related CAD-models / assemblies AND drawings, but in our case only CAD-models / assemblies are shown in the comparison views. Only some drawings added to Parts with Content association are displayed, but apparently not the Calculated ones.

 

Is this how it's supposed to be?

That is all I see as well.  I think that's OOTB behavior

We only support compare of CAD Documents (EPMDocs) that have relationships - eg Owner, Content, etc.  Calculated links are not included in the Compare

Re: Compare to Part Structure does not show drawings?

What does "We only support.." mean? Technically impossible to implement Calculated links in the Compare tool?

 

Users are able to see drawings in the structure view and expect this to be the case in the Compare tool. To them it's just another what seems a basic feature missing.

 

We use Baselines and for example purchasing would benefit a great deal if they'de be able to see which drawings are revised from the previous baseline.
