I am curious on what experiences have been found from moving to Creo 2 from Wildfire 4 or 5. I know there is always the 'why did they have to change that' argument, but in reality (without prejudices) what kind of learning curves have been experienced?
I see this subject is being broached lightly
I am a Pro/E 2000i user with some experience in WF3... and now Creo 2.0
I was perfectly comfortable with 2000i. My short 3 month experience in WF3 only made it difficult to know where to find familiar commands. I knew what to look for just not where. The config editor was a bit simpler and I loved being able to finally add shaded images to drawings.
With Creo, it looks like PTC took all the WF icons and threw them in a bin, shook then up a bit and put them in a menu where they fell after throwing them up in the air.
With Creo 2.0 M010, we seem to have a fairly stable system but I am looking forward to M030 or even Creo 3.0 already. As a WF user, you shouldn't have to much trouble getting going. Just go through the tutorials for the new interface.
I'm currently running a test project on Creo 2.0, although we use WF5. The original intention was to go for Creo 1.0, but there seemed no benefit.
Creo 2.0 is a 'nice' looking piece of software but I do have a few frustrations:
There are some good things though (I've only been using it for 2 weeks - so early days):
In summary, it would be beneficial to attend the update training to discover the changes and improvements. I don't think it will give you massive productivity gains, especially with the dramatic user interface change. I'm yet to start some production drawings, I've only been doing models and assemblies. I will add an update in a week or 2. Hope this helps!

They were moved to File > Options > Sketcher. Also, the layout is a bit reorganised, but they are still there.
