Replacing a document publishing parameters
In VPM 4, if you want to replace a document publishing parameters with another parameter, do it in CATIA: Before replacing the assembly, send it to CATIA as well as the document that will replace the existing one, perform the "replace" operation in CATIA and save it.
Replace operations performed from VPM are supported with one restriction: In assemblies, you can only replace part instances directly located below the root product.
