Applying an Assembly Context to an  Enhanced Scene

The command Apply Assembly on Scene enables you to reset the values of selected overloaded attributes in the Enhanced Scene with the values of the corresponding attributes in the Assembly.
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

  1. Double-click Scene.1 in specification tree to activate the Enhanced Scene.

  2. Click the Apply Assembly on Scene icon .
    The Apply main assembly on Scene.1 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 Scene 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" or vice-versa.

  1. Click OK to validate.

  • 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 Assembly onto the Enhanced Scene):

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