This article describes the issue where the option to Form New Subassembly is not available.
Users may experience an issue where they are not able to Form a New Subassembly from components that are already in an assembly. This can occur if the components are not all at the same level within a single parent assembly.
For example, you can not select a part within a subassembly, but you can select the subassembly itself. As seen in the example below, 'Part 4' can not be selected to form a new subassembly, but 'Subassembly' can be selected.
To select a part within a subassembly, you will need to first dissolve the subassembly. To dissolve a subassembly, right-click the subassembly or Ctrl + select multiple assemblies and select 'Dissolve Subassembly'.
If the parts are listed under a feature, such as a Linear Pattern or Mirrored Component, the feature will need to be dissolved before the part can be selected to form a subassembly. Right click on the feature and select 'Dissolve<feature>'.
