Connect 2.0 is currently under development. Please try it out and provide feedback to email@example.com. Let us know about bugs, feature enhancements, or what you like or don't like about the new viewer. This is a high-level overview. For more information, see the individual 2.0 Help articles.
|How to access the new viewer||
Right-click a filename and choose Open 2.0.
- If you don't see the Open 2.0 option, it means your model was imported prior to support for Connect 2.0.
- If you work on this file in both Connect 2.0 (beta) and Connect 1.0, you're working with two versions of the same file. You won't see the snapshots and settings you created in Connect 2.0 when you open the same file in Connect 1.0, and vice versa.

You can now resize the BOM panel and columns to make them wider or narrower.
You can now show or hide the entire assembly by right-clicking in the BOM and choosing Hide All Parts or Show All Parts.
