Create a simplified user experience for tables on drawings.

Create a simplified user experience for tables on drawings.

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.
R&D, mechanical designer


2. What version of Creo Parametric are you currently running?
8.0.5.0

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

Create an excel-like experience in the program for tables in drawings. Simplify adding repeat regions, deleting columns and rows, changing table size, or just adding text to a box. There is absolutely no reason you need to click 5 times to enter text a cell, and then another 5 times to put text into the cell next to it. Or click the repeat regions in exactly the right order. There is not a single function that is intuitive.

4. What is the use case for your organization?
Design and manufacturing. 

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
Save time and headache.

Yes please. This is a major pain point, particularly for teams that are trying to switch to using Creo from other CAD tools where table UX is easier.

Michael, 

It should be one click to start entering text in a table.  You should be able to navigate the table text by hitting enter to go down a row, and tab to go right.  You should also be able to use arrow keys to navigate the table cells to enter text.  

 

currently the easiest method of creating a table is to do it in excel, then import it via csv.
