multi config - multi body - color and texture problem?

    Hi all,

    I have a part with 2 bodies, one body has just a basic transparent
    color applied, the other body has a texture applied.

    This part also has 2 configs. If I set the color and texture in one
    config and switch to another the changes don't propagate - even though
    'apply to all' is set in both the color picker and the texture picker
    property tabs.

    If I set the color and texture in the second config directly after
    setting in the first, then when I switch back to the first the changes
    are gone again.

    Could it be a bug? What release and SP please?

    I assume that you know of the "Configurations" drop box in the
    color/texture property manager? Use this to set your colors and
    textures in a per configuration basis.

    There is also the "use configuration specific color" option which can
    be found by rmb configuration -> properties -> advanced -> use
    configuration specific checkbox.

    Yes, I am aware of both. This must be a bug although I havn't taken
    the time to test it on a different part. Also, it's true I rarely use
    this combination of texturing a single body and modify
    color/transparency of another body.

    sw2006 sp4

    Thanks for the ideas.

    I am now running into something similar where SW will assign a texture
    to a part if I edit and close a configuration property. SW2006 SP4.1.

    SW will also lose an assigned part color after editing configuration
