In the variant assignment window, you can quickly identify the values that have already been assigned to other objects within that group of variants. That is, if you have a primary object and create variant objects based on the primary, when you display the variant selection window any values already used in this group appear n gray. Values that have not been used by objects in this group appear in black.
For example, Anne Ortha wants to create some variant objects for the Acme Teleporter Pro-tekt case. Each version of the teleporter has some requirements that differ by state (such as New York, California, Texas, and Nevada).
