Missing reference warning missing from folders

S1monS1mon Member Posts: 348 PRO
The new Missing Reference warning is great.

However, it's a little weird that there's no indication if features with missing references are in a folder. In order to find missing references in a complex model, I have to open up all the folders. In Solidworks the warnings all bubble up to the folders. In Onshape assemblies, part errors bubble up to the subassembly level.

To me this is more of a bug than an improvement request, but I can write one up...

    Hi Simon,

    This issue has been logged as a bug and we plan to fix it.

    The main issue is folders don't currently have an icon to attach such that indicator to. We have plans on how to make this all more consistent, but we wanted to release the main useful behavior without waiting on those changes.

    Thanks for reporting!

    I noticed that folders do have a red thing when an enclosed feature is fully failed, but just not a yellow indicator. 

    Glad this is in the works...

    And as of Jan 12th, it's fixed. Thanks!
