Add one level up, or select parent function

Add back a function that just selects parent so I can use it in my mapkey. Nobody got time to look at that tree and desipher from the part name which parent they want. We just want to click a part on the screen and keep smashing our 'select parent' mapkey until the appropriate parent is highlighted.

It's still there, RMB Select parent. (at least in Creo 4, maybe it disappeared in more recent releases?)

I assume you can also record it to a mapkey.

I had to customize to get that in my menu, but sure enough, it works. Thanks!!!

For some reason that only works for in in the model tree, not in the graphics area.  "Select Parent" is greyed out when I try to add it to the shortcut menu.  I created a Mapkey with the one in the model tree but it only works there, not when I select a component in the graphics.  I'm using CREO 10,0.

 

Thanks for any help,

Have you tried the Select from Parents button?  Select a surface and you can select any level above it.

I've seen the select from parent but I prefer the select parent function.  Easier and quicker for me.

 

But thanks for the suggestion.
