Oops, I deleted the Assembly upon which an In-Context Part Studio is based

Ethan_LabowitzEthan_Labowitz Member Posts: 1
So I have a In-context PS based on an Assembly "full assy". I deleted "full assy", but didn't realize I'd done it, and by the time I noticed I had, I had made a bunch of edits to a bunch of parts.
Now I can't update my PS--when I try to, I get an error saying "Context assembly is deleted. In-context features have not been updated." or "Can't open tab. The tab does not exist in this document workspace."
I don't want to "rewind" the history to before I deleted "full assy" because then I'll lose all the edits I made after its deletion.

Is there a way to undo a History entry, i.e. just deleting one line of History, not doing a "Restore to Main"?

I would be happy to re-create the deleted Assembly, but once I do, is there any way i could I re-assign the In-context Part Studio's Assembly Context? Otherwise, I think I'd have to remodel the Assembly as well as every part I modeled in my In-Context Part Studio.

Thanks in advance!

    Create a version where your assembly was.
    Then make a branch.
    then merge to get your assembly back.

    Not quite:
    1. Insert a version at the point when assembly was deleted and create a branch

    2. In the new branch restore the state before deletion

    3. Merge new branch into master
