Reference Documents vs Described By

Hello,

 

I am trying to understand the difference between "Described By" and "Reference Documents".

 

I referred to the below article which is clear but when I try to revise the document, the associate part is also getting revised both in case of describe by as well as in reference documents.

 

https://community.ptc.com/t5/Windchill/Describes-doctype-vs-Reference-doctype/m-p/319970#M37503

 

Please provide the reason why the part is also getting revised.Is there any preference configuration that I should be aware of ?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Hari Shankar

Re: Reference Documents vs Described By

Confusion area for many people for many years...  The diagrams and explanations from PTC don't help much.

 

Only relates to WTDocuments related to WTParts.

From a WTPart, determines which version of the WTDocument is selected.
