Form - Parts list editor
This window is the parts list editor. Here you can define assemblies, add an exploded view to a group, capture parts and link them to the exploded view.
The editor consists of three areas:
1. Left: A tree diagram with an overview of all assemblies
2. Center: An input area for the assembly and the exploded view
3. Right: A list of all parts belonging to this assembly.
This chapter describes how to manage parts list groups. You can find out how to manage parts belonging to an assembly here.
