preferred_save_as_type

Hi everybody,

 

maybe a simple question, but I can't figure it out. I've included the following settings in my config.pro:

 

preferred_save_as_type PDF

preferred_save_as_type STEP

preferred_save_as_type DXF

 

When i open Creo these settings appear in the loaded configuration settings under File > Options > Configuration Settings. However when I create a new part and select File > Save As > Save a Copy the type list is still in default configuration. Am i doing something wrong or...?

 

I am running Creo Parametric 3.0 M030

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Dave

It looks like PTC broke it between Wildfire 5 and Creo 1 and is finally fixing it in Creo 4.

Re: preferred_save_as_type

I didn't find any other threads except for this one.  I'm using Creo 4.0 M050 and trying to figure out this preferred_save_as_type option.

 

What do I put as the options?  I've tried STL, .STL, *.STL, Stereolithography (*.stl).  None seem to change the default list of types in the drop-down menu or the default.  If I wanted to order it like STL then PRT, what should I enter?  And does it work for Creo 4.0 M050 in the first place?

Re: preferred_save_as_type

There are some issues with Creo 4.0 F000 to M050.  These have been resolved in M060.

The behavior of this option is fully documented here:

Re: preferred_save_as_type

Excellent.  Thank you TomU.  I have to stick with M050 for now because our vendor is also on M050.  I did let them know they might need to go to M060 because of those issues.  Hopefully they will soon.

Re: preferred_save_as_type

If I was doing this, I would make a mapkey to select FILE, SAVE-AS, and then select the type that I wanted.

According to the documentation that Tom posted, .prt and 3 or 4 other creo file types will always be listed first, then you can order the other ones after those creo types.
