Creo Thread Type List Spelling Error

What, PTC can't afford a spell-checker???😂🤣😅

Spell checker probably wouldn't have caught this since 'Course' is actually a real word.

I'm pretty sure this is not a PTC supplied thread type but rather something your company has developed.

Well, right, but I meant a HUMAN spell checker or reviewer that could catch these things.  I guess it's obvious then that the coders have no Engineering experience...

 

But I guess that's just par for the "coarse"...  🤣

Most likely when the coders have ESL, they don't understand the intricacies of the English language and its many differences, like between England English and American English.

 

Well, true, they're probably ESL, BUT, since PTC is an American company (still, if I remember correctly), and since the majority of their customers ARE English-speaking, they should make sure it's correct.  This isn't a difference between "colour" and "color", the words have to completely different spellings and meanings (coarse vs. course).  I just thought it was funny.

 

Obviously whoever changed the title has no sense of humor, but, please feel free to move this to the "jokes" section.  😉

Since that's what this menu looks like in vanilla Creo 9.0:

I'd say @TomU is right and the list in your screenshot wasn't even provided by PTC. So it's someone else who made savings on spell checker (at least in this case) 😉

 

What Creo version is this?  Even with the spelling mistake, it would be a good thing if PTC has finally provided a better set of hole charts with the software.

(of coarse most companies probably have developed their own, but still - step in the right direction)
