Please, please, please, still today with latest version

Please, please, please, still today with latest version

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.

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

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.
Just see the picture, How is it possible today that application do not show what went wrong, where, how to fix, No options than click through endless dialogs with ambiquous commands with no explanations. 

It is even better to see "Click ok to Terminate" dialog. 

By the way nothing works here, just endless loop of dialogs... fix.... "f*** 

4. What is the use case for your organization?
God this is basic functionality. You claimed since Creo 5 that there is no menu manager anymore, why PTC, why, 

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?
This means money to all Creo users....

I don't think PTC ever said that Menu manager was gone, just that its usage has been significantly reduced. There are certain 'menus' that just do not lend themselves to the ribbon interface. Repeat regions is another area that still uses menu manager.

I havne't seen the failure resolve mode in a long time. Can you attach the model to this thread?


This was just a unrestrained burst of raw mind-flow in that time. These incidents are reported numerous times to PTC with all available logs. Response is either "this is not reproducible" or "not part of functionality. 

But these should also be presented to PTC executives without any censorship time to time, to see besides new features there is a lots of work to bring basic functionality to today's software level, if there is such thing.

In this case root cause was one unrestrained constrain in sketch of 230 features. Correct way should have been that the software would have shown the problem already when extruding the sketch, instead of trying to patterning it. 

Further more if the first pattern member fails then the software should assume that pattern cannot be done. In this case it tried to complete all 230 copies and at the last copy it trows the Menu Manager.

And for the MM itself. It is quite normal that the first command  "undo changes" does not work at all. That should be the one which always works, because any attempts to fix or rollback only iterates new loop in MM and most probably the reason is that error is not in current loop and it has happened much earlier in modelling.

I'm not going to update the report any further, so you can delete it if you like. It was just like I start, free flow of mind in that time, uncensored.

Focusing on your initial idea, I am going to archive it since we need to have move documentation to keep it on. Still, thanks for sharing your free flow comments & feedback.
