Applying an Enhanced Scene Context  to an Assembly


The command Apply Scene to Assembly enables you to reset the values of selected attributes of the Assembly with the values of the corresponding overloaded attributes in the Enhanced Scene.
You've created an Enhanced Scene in which you've modified at least one of the following:
  • component position
  • component hide / show status
  • component graphical properties
  • component activation status

ainfo.gif (980 bytes) Enhanced Scene creation always uses the Assembly as the reference. Therefore, the command Apply Scene on Assembly will affect all of the Enhanced Scenes with Overload Mode Partial that have not overloaded the attributes corresponding to those that will be updated in the Assembly.
  1. Double-click Scene.1 in the specification tree to activate the Enhanced Scene.

  2. Click the Apply Scene on Assembly icon .
    The Apply Scene.1 on Assembly dialog box is displayed.
    All differences between the Assembly and the Enhanced Scene are indicated by an "X" in the dialog box.

You can also access the Apply Scene on Assembly command by right-clicking Scene.1 in the specification tree and selecting Scene.1 object -> Apply on Assembly in the contextual menu.

  1. Select the products for which you wish to apply modifications.
    The rows corresponding to the products will be highlighted.
    In the Attributes management area, the attribute types that could potentially be applied as a function of the selected products will be un-grayed (in the above example, only the Position attribute has been modified for the selected products, so only the Position attribute type has been un-grayed).

  2. In the Attributes management area, click the attribute types of the modifications you wish to apply.
    The entry in the table of the corresponding modification will change from "X" to "Apply".

  1. Click OK to validate.

Using the Contextual Menu

You can use the contextual menu to:

  • select all product rows or to unselect all product rows
  • designate selected attributes as "Apply" or "X" (Do not apply)

As an example:

  • in step 3 above you would still select the product rows manually
  • in step 4 above you would right-click the selection, which would display the following contextual menu (because only position attributes are potentially applicable from the Enhanced Scene onto the Assembly):

  • you would select Apply Position (or Apply All) to designate the selected attributes to be applied:
