The symbol sketcher tools are not even up to 1980's CAD functionality. It's like PTC started to develop the tool then just quit.
Please update the symbol sketcher to include:
Crossed Centerlines - For holes, cutouts, etc. Currently users have to draw at least 6 elements, divide them, trim them, remove segments, then delete construction geometry for every hole centerline drawn.
Dimensions - really?! Still no dimensions available? Spending hours drawing dimension leaders and arrows is not productive PTC.
Sticky preferences - Why do we have to set the preferences every time we enter the symbol sketcher? I can't understand why horizontal and vertical snapping is not on by default.
Robust grouping tools - Move details between groups, copy elements from one group to another or to all, maybe a graphical group tree.
Add more in the comments.
Also, allow tables. I can't believe PTC thinks that sketching tables is an acceptable practice.
Basically, PTC, add all of the functionality that exists in drawings and the curve sketcher.
Actually, no, the drawing tools are awful as well. PTC, please add AutoCAD like functionality to all sketching areas of Creo.
PTC customers are from around the world from different countries, and in these countries exist different standarts for develop engineering documentation (i mean exist not only ISO, DIN and ANSI, for example). And customers who develop products to other standarts don't have hardly nothing out of box in Creo, even surface symbols, for example. Vendor and users spend a lot of time for creating symbols, palettes, ext. for conformity of their standarts. And i absolutely agree that sketching tools in symbol mode and drawing mode has to be improved, it is already even not funny.
