Place From Vault Enhancement: Ignore Obsolete Lifecycle State Files

March 29, 2019 Mark Flayler

Didn't you get the memo?  We no longer use that TPS Cover Sheet on the new outgoing reports.  I know, pop culture aside, nothing is more annoying than reusing an Obsolete part or assembly in Inventor only to find out it was not supposed to be in rotation any longer.

Starting with Vault 2019, the Place from Vault command inside Inventor has a new option to Ignore Obsolete Lifecycle files so they do not show up in the dialog box for placement.  These are Lifecycle States tagged as Obsolete in the Lifecycle Definition.
