When connected to a Windchill server, it is possible to use the File Open dialog to simply enter a filename and let Windchill locate and open the file, automatically adding it to the workspace in the process. This functionality can be useful for automation within Creo. But, when a generic is requested, only the generic is added to the workspace. And when an instance is requested only the generic and that instance are added.
It would be useful many times to have the entire table added by default.
It is currently only possible to add the rest of the table by using Windchill functions which can't be accessed from the Creo native interface or Creo automation.
So I would propose the addition of a checkbox in the File Open dialog and/or a corresponding configuration setting to allow the addition of all generics/instances when opening a family tabled object from the File Open dialog box.
