When you inspect a part using Creo Simulate, you can view your results in multiple windows. For example, the image below shows a Von Mises stress analysis, displacement, and principle stress vectors.
Great. But now, to inspect the model, you have to rotate the geometry in each individual window.
A series of unsynchronized results.
Wouldn’t it be handy if the system synchronized the geometry? That way, when you spin or zoom in one window, all of the others follow.
Well, in Creo 4, you CAN tie together results windows! Here’s how:
Synchronize Orientation Control
To lock and synchronize windows, just follow these steps:
In Creo Simulate, open multiple display windows.
Click View > Tie Orientation.
Check to see which window is currently selected. Then, click on each of the other windows so they are all selected and tied together.
Now, rotation and zoom actions performed in any window automatically updates all results windows.
A series of synchronized results.
That’s all there is to it. You can see a brief demo in the video here.
If you haven’t already, download the software here and try it yourself. And stay tuned to our “Did You Know” series, as we cover more enhancements in Creo 4.

On Monday, August 7 th , the current rank names will be updated to a numerical rank that shows hierarchy without the use of specific names (Adventurer, Voyager, etc.). We hope that this update will address the feedback we’ve heard about the nomenclature and the lack of hierarchical understanding (issue ID #50). No user action is required for this change.
What does not change: Lithium does not use a points system like we had in Jive. An engagement formula is used to determine your rank level, which is an indication of your involvement within PTC Community. You can rise up the rank ladder by visiting, participating, and interacting with PTC Community members.
Should you have any issues, please log them with the post-migration team using this form. You can view the high priority and resolved issues here.

(Edit: We will be evaluating issue report submissions through September 30, 2017.)
The Support Services and the Marketing Operations teams are aggressively working with Lithium to fix issues now that we are post-launch. In addition to daily calls and updates with our post-migration team, we are working toward providing transparency and a feedback loop for reported issues.
Today, we are debuting a new format for our high priority Known Issues and our Resolved issues, as well as a new way to submit issues.
Effective immediately, you can view the high-priority Known Issues that the team is working on in the current week. This is a constantly revolving list that shows our top priority issues for resolution ASAP. (Please note that it does not represent all reported issues.)
In addition, I encourage you to submit issues that you encounter via the PTC Community Issue Tracker form, which submits it directly onto our issues tracking sheet and ensures it is included in our twice-daily triage assessment. This new process includes a feedback loop where your issue submittal is acknowledged and you will be informed of the prioritization and progress of your submittal.
We thank you for your feedback and your support thus far. Should you have any questions about known issues or submitting an issue, please feel free to reach out to me.
