Really weird... The assembly has a mirrored sub-assembly. I then opened the
original, un-mirrored subassembly and added some parts. SW wouldn't let me
back into the main assembly, complaining about a component in rollback
state. Couldn't close the main assembly, and couldn't exit SW. I had to kill
it from Task Manager.
Any idea what's going on? It's one thing to not update the mirrored
subassembly, but it shouldn't invalidate the main assembly. It's fine after
restarting SW, but missing the new parts on the mirrored side. It sure would
be nice if SW would track things like this, maybe track the mirror as a
configuration rather than a separate assembly.
In general, how do you make best use of mirrored components and assemblies?
