Tweak Replace?


Tweak Replace?

Way back before the Wildfire interface there was a command called tweak replace.

Anyone know what that called now and how to do it?

Its under Edit, Offset. Pick your surface, Edit, Offset. In the dashboard change the icon to the one that says Replace if my memory serves me correctly.


It's a subset of the offset tool.  Grab the surface you want to replace
and select edit -> offset.  Then, on the offset dashboard, click on the
icon at the far left.  A dropdown menu will appear and replace is the
bottom pick, I believe.

Replace is also in the right-click menu when you’re in the Edit -> Offset command. Faster for me than figuring out which icon is Replace in the dashboard (but Doug’s right, it is the bottom one).

Don't forget about the menu mapper on to determine unfamiliar menu picks:

Although Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 is not fully mapped yet, if you map from previous versions to WIldfire 4.0 with the exception for detailing, you should see the correct picks for CE/Pro 5.0.
