Currently (WF2) if I make a mistake and call my parameter Ferd instead of Fred, I cannot rename it. I have to delete it and create it again. However, if I delete it, I have trouble with the releations that use it.
Surely, it would be reasonably straightforward to be able to change the name.
Parameters can be renamed using ModelCHECK by configuring check (*.mch) and start (*.mcs) files, as:
It would be really nice to change the parameter type too. In some cases designated parameters are defined as the wrong type. Check In to Windchill fails because Windchill is expecting a 'String' and Creo has it defined as a 'Real Number', 'Boolean' or something else. The only solution today is to record the value, delete the parameter and recreate the parameter with the appropriate type. It would be really nice to just change the type from 'Real Number' to 'String' and check in.
This has been under consideration for 3 years...wow. So in my opinion, there is some programing impossibility here or someone has forgotten what they were working on when they went on vacation and came back and started a new project...one or the other.
I think Moshe Baum should consider removing the "for future consideration" or maybe an update on the progress or something????
