In some cases you may have a component that has a mixed suppressed/unsuppressed state in different configurations.  If this needs to be unsuppressed in all configurations, there is a fast way to unsuppress SOLIDWORKS Components in All Configurations rather than switching through each configuration and unsuppressing.

If you right-click on the component and choose ‘Configure Component’ you can see a table of all configurations showing the suppress state.

One method is to Copy an unsuppressed cell and highlight all other cells and Paste.  Though this isn’t easy if there are many configurations in the tree.

Another option is to right-click on the component and choose ‘Component Properties’ tool.  Here you can set the Suppression state and apply to all configurations.

What may be an easier method to remember, select the component and go to Edit > Unsuppress > All Configurations.
