Creo Parametric does not allow more than 31 characters for its filename (prt, asm) now.
I want to use much more characters because I want to add some information like a project name, a person name, updated date and so on.
So I want PTC to support more than 31 characters for the filename in Creo.
This is a duplicate of Remove the limit of 31 characters in creo file name which is listed as future consideration, unfortunately it was set for future consideration 5 years ago...
And this one which is still open for voting long file names
in Creo4 is possible
Thanks for the info Jaroslav. I still haven't taken the time to try Creo 4.
I cannot save a model with a long filename in Creo4(F000).
Also, PTC support person said they did not support long file names yet.
Stephen, the future isn't here yet, that is why it hasn't been implemented...
While there at it, perhaps they could allow spaces in file names too. Who's using Unix anymore..?
That under consideration also...Allow spaces in filenames
Someone said it was planned for Creo 4 but I haven't loaded 4 yet.
I checked, but spaces are not allowed in Creo4(F000).
There are more votes here Remove the limit of 31 characters in creo file name
This one will be marked as duplicate, please vote there.
but Toby Metcalf we can't vote there because its marked as "under consideration"
This makes it somewhat misleading because I bet that idea would be closer to the top of ideas if people could still vote on it.
Basically they should be honest and say that they're not considering it at this time..
Great point. It would be nice if Jive allowed it to be marked as For Future Consideration AND still be able to vote.
Oops - My bad Chris!
Let me see what is going on internally and I will reply.
Good day everyone,
I have been emailing with product managers - I do not have a date of implementation, but this feature is being worked on.
Creo 4 Mxxx
Before I retire
You forgot one.....
After I retire
I put 'before I retire' since I turn 65 on the 19th...but no plans to retire just yet.
Maybe I'll wait until PTC gives us longer file names with special characters and spaces!
