why can't I update the context and what does"Context assembly primary instance is not set." mean?
so I followed my usual workflow. I created a new part studio in context, used some references in that context to design a new part, I imported that part into the first assembly and constrained it to the assembly using joints. the issue now is that I changed another part studio, what affected some of the references in the assembly that i based the part of off. normally I would just update the assembly, but it doesn't let me do it for some reason. it says: " Context assembly primary instance is not set. Finish inserting part or set primary instance of context before updating the assembly context." since I already finished finished inserting the part, I wanted to set the primary instance. I looked through all the documentation, but I can't make sense of it at all. any help is appreciated, here is the link to the file: https://cad.onshape.com/documents/f4076b884bd69adfaafe9807/w/d82547b7b2d3e1309b28d8dc/e/8ed62bedbf1c3e3190e7a674
