Can you guys help verify whether or not Ihave gone crazy?
In Creo2 I am trying to measuredistance from one vertex to another vertex of asame planar spline.In other words, the two ends of a squiggly curve.
The message I get back is "This measurement cannot be performed for the given set of references" Huh?
I can get a measurement from one end verex to the CSYS but not from end to end. My curve is located and dimensioned with Strong dims so it's located in space.
weird stuff this morning.
Confirmed....David's suggestion is the correct one. Select measure tool, select curve, hold CNTL, select the vertex, select drop down in flyout, check maximum distance, select the second vertex.
Glad to see it still works. But...now 5-7 mouce clicks to get a straight line dimension was not what I expected to be required to get a simple measurement. Ah...the Creo!
In Reply to Chris Pipe:
Now I know where PTC put some of the mouse clicks that they gladly tell they took away from other operations with Creo.
There must be a universal law of conservation of mouse clicks, like the law of conservation of mass:
The total clicks of the universe is constant within measurable limits of PTC products; whenever PTC products undergo a change, the total clicks of the upgrade is, within measurable limits, the same as the total clicks of all previous versions.

The way I was pickingto measure the distancemade it require more clicks than is needed demonstrated by Mike's clarification. Operator error.It is really about the same number of clicks as Wildfire releases to measure things.
Also, don't be scared of moving to Creo. All in all...I see some good things that have evolved into Creo2. Some of the GUI "logic" is still a bit odd to me. But I realize it made sense to someone and that means logic was used. I just need to get in tune with it. The white background is something I cannot live with as it hurts my eyes. Also the dull gray solid model default is just plain depressing. I will be changing that as well.
Change is okay.
Thanks Mike for the ruling.
