Allow Find and Layer access in Source Copy Geometry Window

Allow Find and Layer access in Source Copy Geometry Window

Currently, in Creo Parametric 2, users have no access to the find tool or the layers in the source window for an external copy geometry.  This means if say the axis layer is not shown, you can't search for axes to copy.  You have to completely back out of the process, open the source file, turn on the layer in the source file, then restart the command, in order to get to the geometry you need.

PTC, please make the Find tool and Layers available in the source copy geometry window.

We are still using WF4 and this seems to arise time and time again, in all sorts of scenarios. In summary, there is no conceivable reason why you should not be able to hide/unhide anything at any time, wherever you are in a feature creation or modification.

Have you tried ctrl-F to bring up the find dialog?  That has worked for me in the past where the command was not available in a menu or toolbar.
