Our company uses a lot of content center parts. So about a month ago, we decided we were going to customize the content center, using the content center editor. We decided to change the description, part number and file name, as well as adding a few of our own custom parameters.
Going through this process, I found quite a few problems. For one, I would make a change to a field, then save it, and try to insert that part into an assembly. Sometimes it worked, sometimes it didn't, and I would have to go back into the content center editor, and make the same change to the same field. I had to do this at least two or three times for each library that I modified (ie Angles, Channels, I-Beams, etc) to finally save the iproperty.
Another problem was that sometimes, no matter how many times I saved a change to a property, it would not save. I still have content center libraries that are missing descriptions, and they just won't save.
My third biggest problem is that the "Change Size" tool does not work on most of my customized parts. I cannot replace my custom content center parts with different sizes.
Has anyone discovered the tricks to make the content center really work? It seems to have a ton of power, but is too unstable to trust.
Thanks for looking
