Allow to change the arrow style on multiple note leaders at one time.

Allow to change the arrow style on multiple note leaders at one time.

Allow to change the arrow style on multiple note leaders at one time. Many of my note leaders are attached to a PNT, this way I can control the location of leader programmatically. These leaders do not have any arrow style on them. It is time consuming to change each leader individually. Should be able to multi select the leaders and change arrow style on all selected at once.

For the desired behavior as stated, Layout tab, Format section, command 'Arrow Style', as action-object (no selection).

To not need to modify the arrows at all, consider the detail setup option 'default_leader_arrow_style'.  The default is 'automatic', meaning arrow for most leaders, dot for surface, and nothing for datum point, but it sounds like your workflow would be better suited by perhaps 'arrow_head'.

Thanks for the information, but what's wrong with adding the requested functionality? I prefer the object-action workflow here. If I change 'default_leader_arrow_style' then my notes/ballons attached to surfaces have arrows (unless a make a change in the menu selection), I want a filled dot for them.

If you are NOT against the idea please vote it up, it won't change your workflow.

Thanks

I don't understand what's missing. I tried this in Creo 3.0 and I can select any number of notes and then choose the Arrow Style command from the ribbon and pick any arrow style and it gets applied to all of the leaders for all of the selected notes in one shot. Alternatively I can select the Arrow Style command first - before selecting the notes - and pick my desired arrowhead style and then drag a box around any leaders that I want to be the new style and they all get changed.

So, unless I'm missing something it seems the software already does what you're looking for. See the video below.

Matt just informed me that it looks like you're referring to Creo 2.0 behavior where the command was indeed a lot more clunky than how it is in Creo 3.0 - shown in the video above.

So, I'll mark this Idea as Current Functionality since we've already fixed the workflow in Creo 3.0.
