Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

Does anyone have the time to either make a quick video or do a brief step by step description of how to make mapkeys on Creo 2.0?

I have been following the thread below:

http://communities.ptc.com/message/188943#188943

... but when I try to follow this in Creo. The tool bars are different.

I haven't made any(many) mapkeys, but I use them frequently, so I'll need to rebuild these before I can move over to the new version.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Dale

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

I have found some of my mapkeys, although they don't work.

When I tried to run the one I use the most, it looks for a table (.tbl) file: abs coords.tbl

When I search for this in my directories (both local and on the network) I cannot file this file.

Any thoughts?

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

Is there a way to step through existing mapkeys to see what they are doing so you can mimick it on new mapkeys?

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

Hi

There is no process to mimic the mapkey created (as per my knowledge)

You can tell your requirements; We can help you to create the mapkey.

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

After I manually delete two tables on existing drawings, it brings in a revision table for special drawings and places it in the top right hand corner of the drawing (vertex?). After makeing other changes, I export a .dwg file for our factory viewer, and I exit the drawing with out saving changes (because I was editing the standard) and they don't want Pro files for all the specials.

Thanks, Dale

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

... need to revisit this:

What is the best way to replicate MapKeys created in an older version (i.e. Creo/WF5.0) and have them work in Creo 2.0?

I am guessing that I wll have to recreate the MapKey from scratch, but since I am not the one who created the MapKey to begin with, I am not certain exactly what it is doing (other than it works).

Is there a way to "step" through a mapkey and see each step/command?

Thanks, Dale

Re: Mapkeys in Creo 2.0

Dale,

In the old version, run the mapkey as usual.

Copy and rename the trail file

Set the following option in config.pro: set_trail_single_step yes

Play the trail file.

The trail file will stop after each command giving you time to see what command was.

Hope it helps,

Gabriel
