Copying Geometrical sets from one CATPart to another


New member
Good morning,

I need help on the following: I have copied Geometrical sets from one CATPart (1) to another (2) and I realized that the copy created a ghost link with the part 1, where the Geo sets come from. Part 1 does not appear on edit + links nor on File + Desk of Part 2, but it does appear when I do a save management on Part 2. How can I break this link? What did I do wrong to have this ghost link?

Many advanced thanks!

Hello MrCATIA,

I am not able to reply on the CATIA forum. Therefore, I am doing it here.

Thanks for the reply! I shared your line of thinking before I encountered this issue. Part 1 is not opened in CATIA and I also run CATDUA and the link does not disappear.
