I must have changed a setting somewhere… Or maybe I am imagining it.
I create a rectangle 12 x 12 x 3/4 (just an arbitrary size). After I push/pull to 3/4 I do a select all (CTRL-A) and to create a component (press G on the keyboard). The component window appears so I type in my name to create my component.
Here is where I thought this behavior has changed.
If I select anywhere on my rectangle it is as though the component was not created in that spot. I have to select all on the rectangle again and remove it and then drag the component from the components in the default tray.
This means every shape I make I have to do this select all and remove what’s there and then drag the component from the tray.
I thought when I do the above steps to create the component that the component is placed in my model.
