Actually, there are a couple more good options that we have changed to make the Measure tool much better.
We also have a mapkey "mm" that starts/resets the Measure tool. The workflow being "mm", take your measurement and then "mm" again to create a new measurement.
Note, I cannot speak to why these are not defaults.
Why is it Measure is treated as a different function to other functions, and you cannot use "Esc" to quit, instead you have to close it by checking the close icon?
1) 2D drafting functionality needs improvement, not all engineering data requires or has associated 3D data.
2) Creo Agent being separate from Creo Parametric. We have need for multiple installs on a single system and this causes issues.
3) Large assembly management and performance when opening large data sets.
I have an entire google document of suggestions/ modifications to UI and other enhancement requests.
1) Drawing performance - When large drawings take 45+ min to open but 3D opens in minutes, there is a problem. The performance hit makes people either want to push towards MDB or back to 2D competitors.
2) 2D Drafting functions - Many older drawings were converted from other formats and are not yet 3D. A better drafting functionality would smooth the transition from 2D to 3D by keeping in the same tool set.
3) Installation deployment for large organizations - Often with larger organizations there is a need for different deployments of settings, and use of automated deployment tools. Would be beneficial if there were easier ways to dynamically deliver the product and setup (settings, psf, modelcheck standards, publishing settings...) to end user machines without a plethora of batch files or third-party packaging tools.
Flow of using functions could be better; Too many places where drop down selection action is required instead of direct (one click selection). Case in point:
1. Difficulty configuring Creo standard options and ModelCheck for a use across a department.
2. Difficulty (time and effort) to configure "ANSI Standard" (English units) Spec piping precludes it use/setup.
3. Architectural & Engineering Style Drawings (National CAD Standard) are still a requirement for some of our Creo work (mostly AFX and Piping). Drawing enhancements to provide overlap into these disciplines would be very helpful: Sheet Numbering, Section Flag Style, Architectural Scales and View Labels. Presently, these do not fit well with Creo and we have to "fake it" to match the style.
Thank you for considering the above.
Thanks for the reply! We are a PTC partner that specializes in 2D->3D translation with PTC products, as well as model performance with large assembly management. We can certainly help with these things.
