Did You Know? A Quicker Way to Work with Features

Do you create or modify features in Creo? Now you can speed up your work by taking advantage of feature mini toolbars and dimension toolbars, available in Creo 6.0 and later. You'll find these toolbars for features frequently used with part and sheet metal design. Here's everything you need to know to use them.

 

To Open  Feature Mini Toolbar in Creo

 

To reach a feature mini toolbar, simply click in the graphics area of your Creo screen.  A mini toolbar appears providing you with quick access to relevant options for your feature.

Right-click in the graphics area to open the mini toolbar AND a shortcut menu.

Note that in addition to the feature mini toolbar, there are also dimension toolbars that allow you to access some commands/options that were previously available only via the shortcut menu for the dimension.

 

Bonus: Tabs That Reveal More

 

If you’re in a newer version of Creo, you’ll see that tabs have a new look. In Creo 6 and later, when you open a tab, a short description (plus a link to a Help page) appears directly in the UI.
