We are planning on upgrading to creo elements/pro 5 (build M090) shortly. We will be using it with PDMLink 9.1/m40
We have evaluated this build and have not encountered any "show stopper" type issues. Before we "jump in", I was doing a last check to verify if you have encountered any issues either with Pro/E or with it's PDMLink interaction that we should be aware of.
Thanks in advance for a prompt reply!
Does Creo Parametric suffer from the same problem?

Hi Tom, hi all.
There is an issue in WF5 considering drawing erase/delete of dimensions and axes.
With the invention of the drawing tree, shown dims and axes are linked to the corresponding views (can be seen in tree). Now the problem is that if you erase an axis or dimension, it is still linked to the view where it was shown - just having the status "erased".
The problem here is, that now you cannot show it again with the show annotations dialog - either in another view or the view it used to be shown in. What you have to do is to find it in the drawing tree, select it and then either unerase or delete it. Having large drawings with sometimes more than 100 dimensions to a view scrolling down that list and looking for erased dimensions really hurts.
There have been SPRs for this and as of M110 there's a solution for dimensions and of M120 it's there for axes as well. In both cases its a hidden drawing option "user_command" that can be set to either "delete_erased_axis" or "delete_erased_dimensions". Entering that option changes the status of all erased axes/dimensions to deleted and you can now again use the show annotations for these elements in any view you like.
PS: Just glad, we wait for M130.
