Enhancement Request: Missing Parts on Import (by Roland Frank)
When opening an "assembly" with imported parts and Solvespace is unable to find the Part(s) you get an Error Message and the "assembly" is opened with the missing part deleted.

Better would be to be able to choose (by button) between getting error and then action like above OR opening Import/Assemble-Dialog and choose new part name and/or location.

You know, sometimes you have to change location and/or Filename on Purpose ... :-)

As a stopgap for now, I'd note that you can hand-edit the .slvs file in a text editor; search for "impFile".

SolveSpace will look for imported files at both the same absolute path and the same relative path (with respect to the assembly file) as before. So moving the files should usually just work, as long all the parts and the assembly move together. There's no good way to handle a change in filename, though, and that would definitely be a useful feature.
