We created https://www.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/case.jsp?n=13254764 which may not be viewable to all customers. The idea is to provide a mechanism to control what is populated into the attributes table when selecting children in the model tree. The current downfall is that if you select children on a large assembly, you can experience a long delay before the table is populated and Creo View is unresponsive at this time. (Note: I'm assuming the delay is due to the population of the attribute table...PTC development needs to confirm.) It would be nice to a solution where I can select/define which columns of attributes automatically populate into the table when selecting objects in the model tree. There is very nice functionality within that attribute table with copy functionality and enabling pasting into Microsoft applications for future report and interrogation. I would like to take advantage of it. Microsoft didn't like the 7000 pages by about 2000 columns pasted into excel.
It's also worth noting that we have been doing this process over the past few builds of Creo View 2, 3 and 3.1. Something has changed in 3.1 to make the unresponsive time much worse so at the very least I would like to get the performance back that we had in previous version.
