Configuration Setting for Datum Axis Display

Configuration Setting for Datum Axis Display

To get a set datum axis to display in a drawing one must select the "Display Datum Graphics" option from the axis properties GUI in the drawing. Once this is done the graphics for the axis still does not display in the drawing. From here the engineer must update the drawing to force display of the axis graphics. This is an extra step that has led to confusion amongst our engineering staff.  Often times the engineer will not realize the drawing must be updated and begin chasing non existent issues with drawing layers etc. in an attempt to get the axis graphics to display. The display of set datum axis did not require drawing updates in WF4 so this should be considered a loss of functionality in Creo. Suggest having a config option that forces display of the axis graphics on drawings.

That is not how axis display is meant to work.  An axis that is meant to be displayed is managed through the annotation dialog.
