Select From Parents-button in Creo View (as in Creo Parametric)

Select From Parents-button in Creo View (as in Creo Parametric)

When working with very large machines (150,000 parts), I find it efficient to open a dynamic viewable of a machine from Windchill into Creo View, and only open a more or less "empty' SimpRep of the machine in Creo Parametric. Then, I find the (sub-sub-sub-) assy in Creo View that needs work, and I find that assy in Creo and change its Representation to Master.

Now the problem: if I click an item in Creo View, I can only determine it's pathname by scrolling the browser and finding the parent assies. Not easy when assies contain lots of subparts. In Creo, I can click a part and click Select From Parents, which shows me the full path.

Can the Select From Parents function be built into Creo View, too?

Thnks!

Hi jkramer,

 

You could use 'Select Parent' from Structure tab:
