Re: Insert object (PDF Files) in drawing

Hello Deddy

If you need embed a pdf file to Creo E/Pro 5.0 drawing click in the Rbbon menu > Layaut > Object... >> Create from file >> Browse and the select your pdf file > Open

For example:

pdf2creo.jpg

Embeded pdf file in Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER)

Vladimir,

in the past (ProE WF4) I had serious problem with ProE drawing containig embedded Excel file. System response during "Zoom In" was VERY slow. CPU load was 100% for a long time.

Does ProE WF5 work better ?

Hello Martin

I working with Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 (formerly Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0) datacode M080 (64bit OS) and embeded Excel object works fine.

Everything is fine - zooming, adding dimensions, views, notes and other object in drawing

Vladimir,

I made a test in Creo Elements/Pro 5.0 (formerly Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 5.0) datacode M080 (32bit OS).

I put Excel object (40 rows, 6 columns, every cell contain a number) in a new A4 portrait drawing.

Then I test Zoom In operation. Result: Processor went up to 100% during zooming.

---

Note1: I know that the response of Pro/ENGINEER during Zoom In operation depends on "strength" of the computer.

---

Note2: I suggest to create a layer for OLE objects and HIDE this layer during drawing modifications.

Re: Insert object (PDF Files) in drawing

Hello Martin

I made the same test on Win7/64bit OS (workstation HP - EliteBook 8740w): I put Excel object (40 rows, 6 columns, every cell contain a number) in a new A4 portrait drawing.

My processor is only for 6% to 12% during zooming.

Note: I think that everything is dependent on the configuration PC

Heve a nice time. Vladimir

No

If you can move only one axis Alt doesn work.

And EFX lite doesn’t work too (EFX_ENABLED YES)

Radovan,

1.]

If you select axis and move one of its ends, then all 4 ends are moving simultaneously

2.]

If you press ALT key, then select axis and move one of its ends, then only selected end is moving

3.]

EFX failed to load in ProE WF5 M080: According to information from B&W, this is the bug. It will be probably resolved in ProE WF5 M090.

Solution: rename original "efx" directory and copy "efx" directory from ProE WF5 M070.
