Each time we check in a new iteration of a drawing, WVS Workers automatically generate a viewable of that drawing in PDF format and add it as an attachment (secondary content) to the drawing in Windchill. This PDF file is then frequently used for production, sent to the customer for approval, ...
This pdf is made in windchill in the "As Stored" configuration so the pdf will show the models as they looked like the last time the drawing has been checked in.
The problem is that when we open a drawing in creo we open a drawing in the normal "Latest" configuration. If we change the underlying parts or assemblies (without changing anything to the drawing) we see the correct situation in on the screen
Although the display in creo will be updated to the present situation, the drawing will not be considered as being modified
As a result, when we save all objects , the drawing will not saved (because it is not modified)
As a next result, since there is no new version checked in, no new pdf is generated as an attachment
The pdf sent to the customer will still be the one of the previous drawing.
Is there a possibility to warn the users that their drawing in fact isn't modified, but the models on the views are ?
