Search: define a new search to find a specific clash issue, type, or status. The matching results are highlighted in the clash issue browser. Click the search icon to toggle the search criteria on and off. Save the search if you want to use it in a later session.
Filter: filter issue results by type or status to see only touching parts, or only unresolved issues. The configuration filter displays only issues caused by configuration-specific part positions. Define anew filter to find a specific issue, or to display only issues inherited from a previous version. Click the filter icon to toggle the filter criteria on and off. Save the filter if you want to use it in a later session.
Configuration: view a list of all configurations included in the clash analysis calculation. Click a specific configuration to see only the issues associated with that configuration.
If you are running clash analysis with one or more configurations, an Inherited column appears. A Yes in this column indicates that the clash issue and status are present in other positions.
Click the column header to sort data in ascending or descending order.

Edit clash issue properties
The Open status is the original issue status after a clash analysis calculation. You can set this status to Accepted if you decide to ignore this clash, and write your reason in the Note section.
If a part is originally included in the analysis, but later excluded, the status automatically changes to Ignored, and the reason changes to Part Excluded.
If one or both parts of the original issue no longer exist, the status changes to Incomplete.
If you set an issue to Conditional Accepted, it will change to Conditional Open after the analysis is calculated if at least one of the two parts involved in the original issue is modified or positioned. You can decide what to do with the issue: is it still accepted or does it need to be fixed? If you save to a file version earlier than 15.00, the conditional states will be changed to Accepted.
To clear all issues in an analysis, right-click the analysis in the Structure Browser and click Clear Issues. This will erase the calculation, as well as all manual status issue changes and notes.
