how can i see multiple part studios while editing one

lennardlorenzlennardlorenz Member Posts: 2
I've come to the problem that when i have to edit one studio that i have to see the other studios as well like i can do when im in assembly. And I've wondered if there is an easier way to to "overlap"  different part studios with an short cut or is the only way through assembly?

    You can open part studios in as many browser tabs or windows as you want. You can also create as many assemblies as needed, even if they contain different subsets of parts. You could show one part studio on each of the monitors you have, too. There are many ways to watch parts while editing another part. In theory, you could even edit a part on one computer, and watch on another.

    ...that sounds like In-Context editing.   You do that from the Assembly.

    Like Martin says - simplest thing is to open multiple browser tabs, and if you have a reasonable number of parts (say 20 or less & they're not to complex), take advantage of multiple parts in one part studio (especially if they share geometry). Just turn on/off visibility for parts your not working with. 
    These are just suggestions - feel free to do whatever makes you feel comfortable. 
    Good luck

    In-context editing. Look it up in the help pages or training courses.
