As it seems that there is not much help on
, I decided to open up a new discussion about this.
What I know until now:
- the documentation of Creo 4.0 (I use Creo 2.0- does anyone where I can find that?)
-the fact that

So, the question is:
Is there any Tutorial and/or Hands-On Workshop for Drawing Program?
as I found for the Pro/PROGRAM:

I will start searching for something similar to update the discussion.
Keep in touch,
I checked: there's nothing there.
Do you have some experience with Drawing Program?
It's such a shame that there is no knowledge about Drawing Program.
It's such a powerful tool!! And with Pro/PROGRAM could bring a lot of opportunities to an automated process in drawing.
I started to play with and I was very pleased of what it can do.
I tried to place a Symbol in one of the states and I couldn't find how. I know you can create detailed instances like the dimensions, notes and balloons but
I haven't found how to create/insert a Symbol in a View State.
I used the Help to find how's done:
To Create Detail Items in a Drawing State
To create detail items such as dimensions, notes, and balloon notes in a drawing state, choose Create from the DWG COMMANDS menu that appears when you click Tools > Drawing Program > Define States > Create State > Record Cmds. Items that you create in one state are not visible in any other state or outside of the drawing program.
if you just want to add, say for example a cloud symbol, to a view or part or whatever that is embedded in a state, then i think I have a solution for you.
Is that what you are looking to do?
yes. a symbol with a text in it for example. so I change the language, it will be a different state with a different symbol with the new language. More simply put: a cloud symbol that I could see in a particular View State
create a state > create a note in that state.
Will this work?
edit: is that video working?
The video is working.
I have to study to understand.
So, basically, you create the custom symbol thru a note?
I will study it tomorrow.
Yeah so if it was a cloud symbol just do &sym(cloud)
or if it is a banana symbol do &sym(banana)
banana seems to be my go to for examples
and all the custom symbols have to be in a directory defined in config.pro? so the system could find it?
