You can do this via view manager - define view normal to face/plane. im guessing you want it with less clicks. maybe macro would help?

Normal to----Set view orientation will be enhanced in Creo Parametric 3.0.

If you minimize the ribbon in Creo 1.0-2.0, the window size is near to full screen.

If it is true for creo 3.0,  this is really a great enhancement.

Hello

This functionality was long awaited.

I think you can switch the idea http://communities.ptc.com/ideas/2555  to “Implementation In Progress”

Thank you for the confirmation that the functionality will be available in Creo 3.0

Nicholas, it seems I misunderstood "normal to"  - looking at your icon there. XD

Full screen functionality  is in Implementation In Progress  too, or only for view normal?

Hi Frank,

Implementation is in progress for View Normal To, not for Full Screen. However, as Tao Sheng Shen mentioned above, You can minimize the Ribbon in Creo 2.0 to get very close to full screen functionality in Creo 2.0.

Same commands that allow to minimize the Ribbon:

- Ctrl+F1

- Double-click on tabs of the Ribon

- Arrow on the top left side of the Ribon (like illustrated by Don)
