Sorry Folks but I discovered something further on this Axis issue and don't want to mislead anyone with my incorrect previous message;
It seems Regenerating the drawing or Updating Draft was not the problem, it was simply not being in the correct tab... you need to be in the Review Tab to fully adjust both endpoints of an axis. This tab things gets me all the time... it will take a while to get used to that.
Oddly, while in Annotate mode, I can still select the axis and drag endpoints, but the results are no good. Wish they didn't even let me select it if I wasn't in the right mode, like when I am in Layout mode and I try to drag a dimension, it's a no-go...
Now I don't like the fact that I can drag a dimension around unless I am in the correct mode, but at least I know that when I am unable to pick a dimension it's because I need to switch modes.
Looks like they re-installed the pro-goofy module again...
I agree with your observations about the ribbon interface in drawings.
If an action on an object is not allowed, we should not be able to select the object until the correct tab is activated. But now I'm confused again, weren't we supposed to be using an object-action method? Wasn't that supposed to be better?
A PTC rep told us at a local user groups meeting last fall that the commands in the 'Edit' menu are typically object action (since you have to select something to 'edit') and commands in the 'insert' menu are typically action object (since there is no object to select yet).
Makes perfect sense once you hear it, but not exactly intuitive. Seems like a lot of pro/E is that way.
(BTW - Tidbits like this are a great reason that you should be going to your local user group meetings. Central Ohio is having one in May ...
As the original post suggested, it doesn't do you any good when you can select an object, but not be able to do any action on it (or get weird behavior) until you select the proper tab. It's probably easier for new users who never are seeing Pro-E for the first time with WF5, and didn't go through the whole rev 18/19, to 2000i/i^2, 2001, to WF changes.
Yeah, user group meetings are helpful, but if you can't make the particular one on drawings you may have to wait quite a long time for the subject to come around again. My local user group (AFAIK) meets only 2 times per year, I just missed the current meeting. Have to wait until fall.
