Not sure if this issue has been addressed

Cabinet with multiple drawers.

From CE:
Hide a drawer face
Select dbx front to go into CM
Change constraints
Go back to CE
Lots of processing takes place - standby to standby
Drawer face that was previously hidden is unhidden
Dbx front is still selected under the drawer face

How do I know this, because I select another drawer face and hide it, select that drawers dbx front and try to go to CM. Dialog box saying you can only select one part at a time.

Suggestion, either auto deselect the previous part or don't automatically unhide what was hidden so you know that you can see that the part is still selected (even though it is now a white cross-hatch instead of a green cross-hatch pattern) and you have to unselect it before moving on to the next part.

Don,

We will have it deselect when returning out of the CM.

However, just want to make sure you know that you do not have to leave the constraint manager each time to select a different part. You can select between any part that has a part editor cut applied via the drop down at the top of the constraint manager and apply all needed constraints to all the parts at once. Then, it will only have to regen the cabinet one time for all the applied constraints. hope this helps.
