How to Distribute Balloons Evenly?

JS_9824412_0-1639166228796.png

Is there a CREO command to align balloons and distribute them evenly? The balloons shown in the image need to be distribute vertically and evenly. Thanks.

Good morning Vladimir, 

 

Neither of them provides a method to align balloons and distribute them evenly in a drawing. 

 

There must have one command in CREO to do this but just hide somewhere in CREO, otherwise, CREO is the only software tool that can't do this "even distribution".

 

Thanks.

Hi BG, I have been using "Cleanup Balloons" in CREO and found it is underdeveloped:

1)In CREO, balloons can go crazy running everywhere and sometimes into remote area outside the drawing border. I have to pick and drag them one by one back to a snap line. 

2)An option to distribute Balloons evenly is too shy to show up and let our users to use it. (or perhaps doesn't exist).

3)The snap line is not designed as a magnet that can pick up balloons. It takes 40 times repetitive tedious "pick & drag" to put 40 balloons onto a snap line with CREO, but it takes only 1 "pick & drag" to put 40 balloons onto a snap line with SolidWorks. If there are 400 balloons to be fixed onto a snap line, CREO will help to create Knuckle arthritis. 

3)Snap lines in CREO can't be rotated freely.

4)By stretching snap line, the balloons can't be redistributed like in SolidWorks.

5)There is no option associated with a snap line to distribute balloons evenly (like in other CAD tools).

 

The above is a typical example to improve CREO's numerous user-unfriendly features for the sake of preventing knuckle arthritis of numerous CREO users (they might file a class action for their painful arthritis in the future :-))
