Assembly

I asked this question and received guidance, but I am still not able resolve the issue.
In Pro-E, I model the parts, assign part numbers and save them in Pro-E folder.
When modeling the assembly, the first part is brought on the screen from the folder and is fixed.
All subsequent parts are recalled from the Pro-e folder,  placed on the screen and fixed to the assembly.
 
In On Shape, I have modeled 3 parts, assigned the part numbers to each one, and all of them appear in the Documents file.
I have assigned following names to them- Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3.
In the Documents file, where all the parts reside, I clicked on Part 1 and it opens on the screen.
In  the assembly mode, there is only one Instance, Part 1. 
Each individual part I bring on the screen is named Part 1 in the Instances. 
Searching for Part 2 and Part 3 shows no results. Where are Part 2 and 3 ?
I have no idea how to create Part Studio with all the parts in it. I am really confused

    @john_brodowski Can you share the document you are working in to the larger community here, or even to a select few if you need?  That is one of the great aspects of Onshape.  The follow mode in Onshape is really cool for things like this.

    Hi @john_brodowski I saw your previous post I suggest you follow @pete_yodis advice of sharing the model to guide you better, in the meantime you can read this post : 
    https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/1529/assembling-imported-parts#latest

    Is for imported parts but maybe it will help you clarify a bit where your parts are if this is the issue.

    John-

    Stop pulling your hair out trying to figure this out. It's being fixed and will change soon. I'm not sure there is a good answer to your question right now.

    please stay tuned.....

    Do the parts appear in your parts list like this?

    If you insert parts into your assembly, you should see your dialog like this:

    You can then insert parts into your assembly by inserting the part studio.

    john_brodowski  , I think you have created all three parts in different different document. For inserting all parts in assembly you need to put all parts in one document with the help of copy clipboard option and paste tab in required assembly document. After that you can insert all your three part in assembly as shown in below video.

    Maybe I am not understanding the problem. Even if the user has made many parts in individual parts studios they are all available to insert into the assembly studio.

    @peter_hall , I think @john_brodowski is facing inserting problem because he had created each part in different different document. If he will create each parts in individual parts studio in one document as mention by you, then he might never face that problem.

    This is correct.  @john_brodowski shared his documents with me and I was able to see that.  As you mention the parts need to be all within the same document at the moment.  This is a current limitation of Onshape at the moment.
