Creo View Load First Level Branch Link option

Creo View Load First Level Branch Link option

When opening large possitioning assemblies from Windchill in Creo View it would be great to have an option to load the  first level branch links.  This could be an option to select a number of levels to load or just the first level.  Upon opening upper level part numbers, we typically are looking for different attributes (description, classification, etc.)which do not load automatically because the branch links are not loaded.  We do not desire to load the full maching load with the current option because that takes entirely too long.

It looks like this has been implemented in Creo View 4.2 (just released.)

Controlling the Expansion Levels of Branch Links
When opening a Positioning Assembly Representation that contains branch links in Creo View, you can control the number of levels of branch links that automatically expand.
Benefits and Description
A new expansion option on the Global-Loading page enables you to set the number levels of branch links that automatically expand. By limiting the number of branch links to load, large structures can be loaded more quickly.
The option is available when the Autoload branch links option is selected.

I can confirm this is in 4.2 and works wonderfully!
