On several of our designs we use variants. However on occassions we have to change parts.
What we have noticed is that if you have a base part with variants setup then if you change the base part on the schematic, following packaging the variant parts are removed from the table.
When using Design Capture we could change the base part and this did not remove the other variants from the table.
Is this a bug in the way DxDesigner handles variant information and if so is it going to be fixed in a later release?
Attached is a powerpoint file which shows more clearly the problem we are seeing.
