We are currenlty working on getting setup in PDMLink (9.1) with arbortext editor (5.4)contentand have come accross a question.
The question is releated to state changes.
Currenlty it dosen't appear that a state change will generate a new rendition. Is there a way to make a state change trigger a new rendition. We are comming from Documentum and we used to use a state change to remove watermarks.
You probably want to direct this query at a Windchill mailing list/forum. You could start with the PTC forums?
The answer to your question is "yes" you can make lifecycle state changes trigger a rendition but I believe that would be done as part of a workflow (with the workflow changing the state at the same time it does the rendition). BTW renditions are called "visualizations" in Windchill and you will need to have a WVS (Windchill Visualization Services) Worker setup to call PE and do the publishing.
