Notes - boxed text

Hi,

I have recently updated to Creo 6.0.4 (from 5) and and I can't get to properly write notes with boxed text. I want to represent a geometric tolerance in a text note. Attached picture Note - boxed text Creo5.png shows a typical note I would write rather easily in Creo 5. The way I would do this in Creo 5 was to :

  1. write "TOLERANCES ARE : ";
  2. then I would click the BOX (apply box formatting to selected text...) button from the toolbar;
  3. then click the surface profile symbol from the toolbar;
  4. then click the BOX button again to close the first box;
  5. then click the BOX button again to open a new box;
  6. type "0.25";
  7. then click the BOX button again to close the second box;
  8. then click the BOX button again to open a new box;
  9. (and so on)

Not as user-friendly as you would hope, but it would work.

Now, when I perform the same steps in Creo 6, it shows me the result I want while I type, but the various boxes are merged as soon as I click outside the text zone. Picture Note - failed boxed text Creo6.png shows the unwanted result.

That seems like a bug, doesn't it? Does anyone know a way around?

Regards,

Mathieu

Re: Notes - boxed text

Note sure of how to do it in the "WYSIWYG" box of typing, but in Creo 4.0, I right click on the text and open the properties. Then I would type:

 

@[symbol@]@[.025@]@[A@]@[B@]@[C@]

Re: Notes - boxed text

OMG! That code-style way of typing still works in the Note Property dialog box?! Thanks! I thought it had disappeared when Creo introduced the possibility to edit text directly in the main window, along with the toolbars and the Box button.

Thank you very much!
