  1. I have been having problems when using the very logical and consistent Change Layer tool on ordinary geometry elements in the model. However, when using it to move a component to a different layer than the one it was placed on I get a popup asking if I want to change the component definition and all instances or create a new component. This appears illogical. I am not in the component edit mode. I am only trying to move a component on Layer 2 for instance to layer 5. this seems very easy and consistent. Is there a way to do this now that I have not found. If not could a change component instance tool be added that would keying edits of all of a components attribute values. For a component instance this would include the component name. Layer placed on, and the transform, rotation, and scale x,y &z values. I know I can work around this by deleting and placing another instance on the correct layer but resetting all the attribute data when only one is changing is frustrating. Thank you.
  2. Hi, Im trying to turn my models into components to use in larger models. This process is either buggy or perhaps I am stupid. I expect to: select my model Press "Create component button" Select library indicate origin Save model as component in that library. As you cans see from the images, I have been trying something along these lines but the components do not show up in the library I created. Even after a refresh. But when I try again, it tells me it is already there. When I rename it something else, the model shows up as the old name and the new name, I also had issues where I could not save anything because it claimed the library was "read only" but I deleted the library and it isn't happening on the new library I created.
