Clicking Mouse Won't Get Rid of Dimensions

I'm on Creo 2.0 and periodically run into this. When I click on a feature to see its dimensions, I can't get the screen to repaint, no matter how many times I middle or left click my mouse. I usually have to click Regenerate or Repaint to get them to go away. Anyone else see this? I've replaced my wireless mouse twice, and it still happens.

We see it on fairly rare occasions. Generally, activating the window gets rid of them.

RE: Clicking Mouse Won't Get Rid of Dimensions

?? I'm in an active window when it happens.

Clicking Mouse Won't Get Rid of Dimensions

I understand.

Activate it again in an attempt to get rid of the dimensions.

RE: Clicking Mouse Won't Get Rid of Dimensions

I may as well click regen.

My experience - double clicking with left mouse button away from model will clear the dimensions in 3D models. Middle mouse button won't do anything. Alternate - Ctrl A to reactivate the screen

You can also hit the Esc key which will clear the dimensions but leave the feature selected in the Model Tree

Sure.

Depending upon how large the model is and if regen takes a bit of time.

I have that happen occasionally...just yesterday. Repaint did the trick without a time penalty. On my current model, Regen or activate would be another couple of minutes (or more) of staring at a non-responsive screen. Not sure why it happens when it does but it's definitely not repeatable. I'll try to remember next time what I was doing that might have caused it.

Brian,

In Creo 2 you have to create a Scene file then point your config option at it to get your desired custom lights.

In my case I have a lights file called 8 lights that I wanted as my default. Here's what I had to do:


1) Go to the Render tab and open the Scene dialog box - choose the Lights tab in the dialog box.

2) In the upper right hand corner you will see Options - select Import Lights. You will be able to browse to your desired light file and select either a .DLG or .LGH file type.

3) I chose a file titled "8direction.dlg".

4) Save the Scene - I called mine "8lights.scn"

5) Last step - use the config option "default_scene_filename" and enter the location for your desired scene file. Restart Creo and that lighting "scene" should appear as your default selection.

Hope that helps!
