Trick for reordering components in an Inventor assembly.

A - answer In Inventor R6 and R7 you cannot reorder assemblies by mouse-dragging their components in the assembly browser.
In these Inventor versions you can use the following trick to change the order of components:
  • In the assembly mode start the Pattern Component command
  • Select components in that order you want to see in the browser
  • Create any pattern (array)
  • Erase the newly created pattern
Your assembly is now displayed in the new order.
