Re: Automatic BOM indexing

so you have 1 bom and your indexing 2 views. the automatic should work fine and not duplicate an index. it should label every visible part in the first view and then the remaining parts on the second view you just got to use the automatic function twice

Re: Include / combine

one thing I can tell you is the driver block should not need a keypoint to position it and should not be defined in the set. only the part your including in the file with the driver block should have a keypoint to position it on the driver block.
