Change Mate Connector Type

lni64lni64 OS Professional Posts: 38 ✭✭
It used to be possible to change the type of a mate connector after the definition (say from slider to cylidrical). This feature was quite usefull but it looks like it does not work anymore (cant select anything from the dropdown list). Was the behaviour changed by purpose or is it just a bug?
Thanks Lutz

    lutz_niggl, I checked with my Onshape,But i can changed the type of mate after definition.

    You can change mates retrospectively, but not mate connectors.
    Connectors are universal: they work for all types of mate.

    Thanks, everything works fine after a browser refresh. Onshape is running so stable that I often forget such simple remedies  like reboot / refresh :-)

    I'm happy that a simple refresh fixed it but it still sounds like there is a bug here.  If you run into this case again, can you submit a feedback to us so that we can look into it?
