We are upgrading to Windchill 10.2 and Creo 2.0 from Windchill 9.1 and Pro/Elements 5.0 We are wanting to use the "Mark up" funciton in Creo View to both mark up our drawings in the review process and to retain the information for later review of the design process.
I am looking for best practices, and how to understand the way that Creo View works.
How are annotations preserved when the revision changes?
Will the annotation stay with the revision it was added to, or will it transmit to the next revision?
Also, will they stay permanently or are they deleted when a Creo drawing or model is released?
Thanks in advance, James
Annotations are stored with the representation they are created from. As long as you don't delete old representations, the markups will stay. Every time someone creates a markup, they can save. You can open a previous markup, make changes, and save it as a new markup.
Some recomendations from a production environment:
When saving markups, create a meaningful name (maybe initials, and date)
Markups are associated to a particular Representation. Just load the representation into Creo View to access the available markups/annotations through the Annotation sets pane. Take a look at this article.
