|The Functional Import capability copies geometry from one
part to another part. The copy can be done from one part editor to
another part editor or in a product context (contextual link). The
import behaves in the same way for both these cases. The only difference is that in a
contextual import, the product context determines the position of the
import (computed from the relative positioning of the origin and target

The synchronize command is available when the import
is not synchronized. It is accessible from edit links.
The geometry is copied from the reference according to the changes.
The synchronization is not possible if the reference is not loaded :
you have to load it manually beforehand.
If the import is not synchronized, the status is propagated to
the part, which becomes “not up to date”. Updating the part performs
a synchronization of all the imports and then updates the other
features (including those based on one of the imports). Each import
can be synchronized via local update command.
