Part Studio Configurations - Drawing are not updated

AuroraRonAuroraRon Member Posts: 103 PRO
Is this a bug? 

There are different configurations for a part.  When a different configuration is selected, the drawing for it has to be updated.
If I update the drawing, it shows completed but it never updated.

The new configuration is NOT being shown.  What am I missing here?

Not being able to identify what part configurations in some way on a drawing is also something that is causing me a lot of problems.

I'm using a block representation of a more complex assembly in this example.

    From a quick glance of your video, it looks like you're just changing the configuration you're looking at in the part studio.  The drawing references a specific configuration and that is not being changed.  To change the configuration referenced by the drawing, right click on a view and choose "Change configuration..."

    This way, you can look at and model different configurations in a part studio without disturbing your drawings.

    Well that's obvious NOW.   Nice catch Thank you for taking the time to help.

    Okay so it's like editing in-context. Love it. "It will not break things" I see the logic behind it now. 

    Wish I could show what the part configuration is in the drawing using call-out, it would have been obvious.  That is my remaining sticking point. Would like the drawing to identify what is being shown.
