Annotation of hole centerlines in drawing mode

Annotation of hole centerlines in drawing mode

We recently have gone from Creo 2 to Creo 3 M20.


I have created a drawing of a small assembly. I want to show the hole centerlines of the various parts.


In Creo 2, I would pick the views, pick the "Show Model Annotations" button under the "Annotate" ribbon, then pick the "Show The Model Datums tab, then choose the centerlines I wanted or choose show all.


In Creo 3 this does not work. I can pick the individual parts and the centerlines will show, but if I have an assembly drawing with 100 parts (which is usually the case), this could become tedious. What am I missing? Is there a config option that has changed between Creo 2 and 3? I have contacted PTC support and they have verified my issue, and that my method did work in Creo 2 but not in Creo 3. They have not gotten back to me with a solution yet.


I am now reaching out to the REAL experts hoping to find a solution to prove once again that the users are smarter than the help desk people.



Thanks,

You probably need to set the config option “show_axes_by_view_scope” to “all_sub_models”.

I forgot to supply the correct answer:


setting the config option “show_axes_by_view_scope” to “all_sub_models”.
