Once you are finished selecting right click and select done.
You can also right click and change your selection priority from Assembly Leaf Occurrence
Filter to Assembly Occurrence Filter.
Once the Create Quick View Representation command has completed creating your new
View Representation you will be returned to the View Representation you were in

***** Special Notes:
1. Once a View Rep is created. If you right click in the Display window with nothing
selected you will be given an option to activate the View Rep that you just created.
2. When you are in your newly activated (from the step above) view rep. If no items
are selected and you right click in the Display window you will be given an option
to return to the Previous View Rep.
3. You can also create a view rep by selecting the parts in the browser or the display
window first. Then right clicking in the Display window and selecting create view
rep from the pop up menu.

Updated to Rev 1.1.0 12/01/06 Fixed a problem where KWiKSert would error out if
a new part was made in a assembly, not saved and KWiKSert was used on it.
Drastically speeds up the process of adding fasteners in Autodesk Inventor or anything
that gets constrained with a Insert. Select the bolt head, select a hole, and it
inserts the bolt. Now you can continue by selecting holes one at a time and it will
insert the bolt and constrain it as you go, or you can select a face with multiple
holes and KWiKsert will only populate the holes of the same size and style.

KWiKInsertNFix is for use with Autodesk Inventor files created using the Master
Sketch method. It allows you to select multiple parts, and then it inserts them
into the assembly relative to the Origin planes, and grounds them.
Rev 2.0.1 fixed problem when Project file had two pointers to the same path. This
would cause a error when opening the Folder Browse dialog.
Rev 2.2.1 added Options checkboxes to AutoClose on completion, and open file dialog
in last used folder, or workspace. Fixed swapped columns "Adaptive", and "Reference"
Rev 2.2.3 Made it so the Inserted parts get inserted in the Active assembly instead
of the top Assembly
Rev 2.2.5 Rev2.2.3 removed ability to insert parts in top level assembly. This rev
fixes that issue.
Rev 2.3.0 Rev2.3.0 Fixed issue of Stop Select staying in Context menu after running
KWiKInsertNFix. Also removed Web connection. This was a way I could see how much
a tool was being used, but I never check the numbers so their is no need for it
KWiKShapes allows you to define Rectangular and Round shapes with Tubing walls or
not, and will add the shape fully constrained to a Autoesk Inventor sketch.
