Why don't add quick selection wheel from freestyle mode to normal mode

Why don't add quick selection wheel from freestyle mode to normal mode

In the normal mode of creo it's the drop-down menu for the right click. If you use freestyle mode i saw that it's a quick selection wheel (same as solidworks)

and i think it's a pretty good feature. If it's develop why PTC don't put this everywhere.

like this one:

Can you post an image of the wheel for people like me who have never used it?

I'm in favor of any interface that actually improves the functionality of the software.  There are thousands of good and bad examples of interfaces in office applications, video games, information kiosks, etc.  PTC chose the laziest path and mimicked Microsoft's ribbon interface, which offers no benefit to the user in a solid modeling environment.  Also, I really like the AutoCAD philosophy of allowing users to select the environment that suits them best, where newer versions of AutoCAD can be configured to use any of the older interfaces.

thanks for the idea

Wow! That's pretty interesting.  How is it to use?  Fast/efficient?  Do all the icons stay in the same place relatively?

Wouldn't hold my breath for this to happen, especially since in Creo 4.0 the wheel has been removed and right-click menu is now a list, like in all other parts of Creo.

It's bad i thought that wheel was an improvement, but it looks like PTC thinks it's not.

Unfortunate but predictable.  PTC seems to have abandoned innovation for mimicry.
