"Show component in view" Settings

"Show component in view" Settings

Hi everyone.

I need an explaination for an issue i find using NX 6

I Use same shared License on 2 different workstations. First PC is Workstation out of my Studio. Second one is my workstation.
Using client PC, when i use the "show component in view" command, in drafting, i can select elements from ASSEMBLY NAVIGATOR, after clicking on selection tool over the list of hidden component.
This one not appear on my own pc. I can only select components from List in "Show components in view" window.
Can anybody tell me how to set this command for selecting from ASSEMBLY NAVIGATOR?
Version of NX6 are the same (my client gave me upgrade files for the last release)

I take a screenshot for each selection tool.
Images at following links. You know the way to have this "selection button" in component selection?

While in Drafting, make sure that Assembly Modeling is toggled ON, which you can do from the Start menu.

RE: "Show component in view" Settings

Thanks for the reply.

Unfotunately is not the way to solve my problem.
That's also becouse without Assembly ON, I could not use the command "HIDE/SHOW COMPONENT IN VIEW".
Differences are only in "SHOW COMPONENT IN VIEW" command usage. The button appear in second screenshot i posted last time.
The "SELECT COMPONENT" button let me select from Assembly Navigator,  (or on sheet) the component i want to show in a view. Is not a problem in UG usage, is only an "upgrade" of user interface, that don't forces me to look up and down the "Hidden component" list.


RE: "Show component in view" Settings

Are you sure that you're running NX 6.0 on BOTH workstations?  I cannot under any conditions show what you call the 'Full' menu using NX 6.0, but it's there when I'm using NX 7.5.

RE: "Show component in view" Settings

Thanks to you JohnRBaker, you are right. Siemens implement some part of 6.0 release for the Company I drawn for. Is not a standard tool, I think is a trial mode for Siemens to test new features for future releases, adding features to old versions of Unigrphics used by worldwide operative companies.

After this, I found a limitation using this "pimped" version of unigraphics, and I want to know if anybody can help me to correct this annoying issue i found everyday, during I use Routing Mechanical .

everytime I use "make corner" in Routing mechanical, It  shows  me an error. Log file tells:

UNDO_UG: Recyclable status of mark 1453  set to False

&MACRO MESSAGE_BOX -2, Error recovery completed for the following error:
&MACRO MESSAGE_TEXT  Internal error: memory access violation

Nx 6 is started using an external link that use remote library (stored in a server in main seat of company) for component to insert using routing mechanical.
Other information: Same startup link, used in main seat of company, run without issues. This problem appear only in remote use.
There is something wrong in configuration of this edited version of nx6, can anybody help me find and correct this problem?

Thanks a lot.
