Hello, Has anyone used the hole table function in a drawing? I've read it only works on "drilled holes." This drawing I'm working on has both straight holes (aka drilled in PTC speak?), and both tapped and clearance standard holes. The hole table accounted for only some of the straight holes. I would imagine if it's only capable of listing straight holes that it would list ALL of them?

All of the holes on my particular part were via the hole creation box I used "straight, tapped and clearance" all on the same part.and in the drawing the hole table listed only some of the straight holes.which again, since it's just a round hole is what they are referring to "drilled holes" in the help files. It's totally crazy that A. the help files explicitly state only "drilled holes" will be represented in the output table while in actuality I can only get some of them to show (ill point out a little documentation FUBAR with them using "drilled holes" in the docs and "straight hole" in the software) B. All legacy apps I've seen create a hole chart and include..astonishingly ALL things hole!
I'll hide this little SOAPBOX story in this posting as not to draw too much attention to my whining: mine is a very small group using Pro. Up until a month ago we had 6 active maintenance seats on one SCN. 5 expired leaving one. With this very issue I attempted to get tech help. DO YOU know that "part of PTCs business practice is to put a hold on all seats under an SCN as soon as 50% of them become inactive? So I was denied service even though I paid a Grand and a Half for that 6th seat for a full years service. My maintenance rep at PTC actually told me that my last seat automatically became inactive when the others expired. But seems to dance around when I press for a more precise answer. The more precise answer was given to me by my inside sales rep at PTC.seems my maintenance rep felt it was good business to use this as an opportunity to finalize an order for those 5 expired seats. Shady.
