You can control whether certain warning messages are displayed. You can restore messages that have been suppressed.

Click Tools > Options > System Options > Messages/Errors/Warnings.

Show errors every rebuild Displays the What's Wrong dialog box every time you rebuild the model. If cleared, the dialog box appears only once.
Treat missing mate references as errors When enabled, if a mate is missing a reference (for example, because of a deleted or modified part), an error appears in the FeatureManager design tree and the mate that is missing the reference is suppressed.

When disabled, the mate with the missing reference is suppressed without showing an error.

Warn before saving documents with update errors Displays the What's Wrong dialog box when you save a document with rebuild errors, and gives you the opportunity to fix the errors before saving the document.
Warn when starting a sketch in the context of an assembly When enabled, users who start a sketch while they are in an assembly receive a warning that they are not adding the sketch to a part.

To use a sketch to create a feature in a part, a user must open the part for edit.

This warning is enabled by default and can be turned off by the user.
