To Replace the References of a Child Feature
1. Select a feature that is the owner of references, and perform one of these actions:
In the Reference Viewer, right-click the feature and choose Replace References.
Click Model > Operations > Replace References.
The Replace References dialog box opens and shows the references that are child features of the selected feature.
2. To replace a reference:
a. Under Original references, select a reference.
b. Click the New reference collector, and select the replacement reference.
All the child features are selected for their reference to be replaced.
3. To reset a changed reference back to the original reference, select the reference under Original references, and click Reset.
4. To remove child features from the list of features whose reference is replaced, under Update child features, clear the check boxes next to the required child features.
5. To roll the model to the most recent feature from which a reference can be selected for the selected reference, click Roll To. This feature is shown next to Roll To.
6. To cycle through the possible positions for the feature that would result from the references:
a. To regenerate the model with the references that were edited so far, click Preview.
b. Under Update child features click next to the feature. Each click places the feature at the next possible position.
* The button is available for features with internal datum planes if at least one reference of an internal datum plane has been replaced by a new reference, and the feature has been regenerated.
7. To view features in the Reference Viewer, right-click the feature and choose Reference Viewer.
8. Click OK.
