Improve the insertion of welding symbol in drawing with a graphic interface easier to use

Improve the insertion of welding symbol in drawing with a graphic interface easier to use

Currently in the drawing of Creo Parametric 6 the weld symbols are generic symbol saved/hide in a  system folder (System Syms). There is no special button for the weld symbol.

Then the users have to choose the Weld Symbol file and then select a lot of checkboxes (hide in other checkboxes) to edit the symbol as you can see in the following picture:

Notice that the preview of the symbol on the right is small and every time you have to change the dimensions of the preview panel and enlarge the window. And every time you change something, the preview loses the zoom.

 

This interface is difficult, slow and sometimes frustrating. And you cannot change the type of Weld Symbol, you have to delete it and create another symbol from another file and clicking the same checkboxes.

 

So I ask you to replace this method with a special tab for the welding symbols, like what happened for the Geometry Tolerance in Creo Parametric 4.

 

I know that there is a Welding application in Part and Assembly, but sometimes what is necessary is only the symbol in the drawing (like for the Datum Feature Symbol)

 

I want you to notice what are the Graphic Interface for the weld symbols of other CADs:

As you can see, everyone of them has its special graphic interface for the insertion of  welding symbols in the drawing..
