Quick Support Tip: Navigating Model Complete
SDS/2 v7.2 changed how the Model Complete feature works. With a Model Complete date set, the member and all its attached submaterials are completely locked down. This impacts multiple items, including Piecemarking and Change All.
You may have run across this new window:
When a member is changed that has multiple members with the same piecemark, but one or more is marked Model Complete, SDS/2 will alert the user with the new window.
The window states there are four members that are the same, but only three are editable.
Selecting Yes on this screen will break out the edited member from the Model Complete member. If there are more than two or more editable members and Yes is selected, they will all be broken out from the Model Complete member. If No is selected, only the member that was edited will be changed.
Since materials on a Model Complete member are also locked down, you will run into a similar situation when trying to edit materials.
