This just struck me as funny. From another CAD support site:
In SW 2017 why does the XYZ arrows/UCS disappear when using the measure tool? Is this a bug? See attached picture.
If you search for the first part of the sentence it is posted on 3 forums.
I look at other software forums to determine the base quality and capability of CAD software.
For one product, there were always a ton of posts of writing routines to do things that are baked into most other software. For the most part the questions/complaints are of similar nature. Every so often I find a link to something interesting, like: http://blog.rectorsquid.com/linkage-mechanism-designer-and-simulator/
The other forums also have similar operating problems:
"If you do a search for Measure in the upper right corner of the forums, the 3rd and 4th search results (just after your post which comes up 2nd) are the same issue. I highly recommend searching the forum before posting so we don't get a lot of duplicate posts in the forums."
I've used too many systems to care. I wanted a better Pro|E and I'm pretty sure I got it. I wanted to know if SW really had anything on Creo... there are plusses but the minuses far outweigh what I can do with core Creo. And that's with a 10 year PTC lapse to boot! I will invest in what I am vested in. And time is something I have to manage carefully for now.
