Patterning in assembly seems to suppress slot mate functionality?

Eleanor_CoffinEleanor_Coffin Member Posts: 31 PRO
I have a subassembly that contains a slot mate, so a plate can slide back and forth. When I insert that subassembly into my top assembly, that slot mate is still functional and I'm still able to slide the plate. If I pattern that subassembly, I appear to lose the slot mate functionality in both the seed and the pattern. It's fine if they move in concert; I don't need each instance of the subassembly to slide independently. Is there a way around this that doesn't involve just inserting the subassembly four times and re-mating it each time?
