Take a punt - Pre-populate the BOM when idle.
Low priority, nice to have one day.
On occasion I've completed building an assembly and have been sitting twiddling the view of the model around contemplating what to design next, or generally soaking up how awesome my widget looks. If I then click on the BOM OS wakes up and decides it might be a good idea to build a BOM...
It'd be nice if it used some idle time to pre-populate the BOM on the grounds it might need it later. Or if we had a preference of "Always build a BOM".
