Overview of the Edit Bill of Materials table
Line item controlsBy default, the table will display a structured (hierarchical) BOM. The very first column will contain buttons on each subassembly, that let you show and hide children of that subassembly. Next to the button is a column that displays the item number of each line item in your BOM, in the form of x.y.z.a... Item numbers are generated by Bommer to correspond with the order in which it processes the components from Fusion; root components will have an empty level.
Show Root Component - Toggle to show or hide the root component (the top level of the current design) in the table. Note that by default, all properties in the root component except the name can be edited in this table.
Show Excluded Components - Toggle to show or hide components that have “Excluded?” checked.
Flatten BOM - Toggle to switch between a hierarchical BOM and a flattened parts lists. This primarily affects how quantities are tallied, and whether components will be duplicated in the table: Hierarchical BOMs will report quantities at the current level of the hierarchy; if a component shows up in multiple areas in the design (for example, the same screw component is used to fasten two different subassemblies), it will show up once in each area or subasssembly. Flattened parts lists will count quantities by component irrespective of a component’s position within the assembly hierarchy, and will only contain one row for each unique component.
Isolate Selection - Toggle to switch selection behaviors. By default, selecting an item in the tree will focus that item in the table. If this is checked, a selection in the design tree will isolate the corresponding row in the table. Combined with Allow Multiple Selection and Show Isolated Selection Children, you can isolate a subset of components for easier editing
Allow Multiple Selection - Only applies when Isolate Selection is checked. Check to select multiple items in the design tree while the dialog box is open. By default, you may only select one item (when you select a new item, the old item is deselected)
Show Isolated Selection Children - Only applies when Isolate Selection is checked. Check to show all children of selected items (in addition to the selected items).
