Assembly Mate Frustration Only to Find Out...

I spent about an hour (probably closer to two) this morning trying to figure out why my mating scheme I set up a couple weeks back for a subassembly wasn't working as I anticipated coming back to it again today only to find out that a Limit was defined in one of them. We need another generic visual cue for when these are altered from standard defaults. I had to go and start randomly editing each one in order to find out the culprit.

    Great idea.
    It could take the icon for the type of limit, too. In your case above, the icon in the Mate list would be the Angular Limit icon (instead of the Linear limit icon you used). That would give us even more useful info.

    (Of course, then you'd need to figure out a way to show limits in multiple DOF)...
