WF5 selection highlighting changes - hidden entities highlight now :(

highlite-selected.pnghighlite.png

Which component is selected here? (white or blue?)

Has anyone else noticed that in WF5 if you highlight or select a component in an assembly it highlights all the hidden entities? This is a real nuisance in top down design with components that have Ext. Copy Geoms of other components. When you select or preselect the component it is hard to tell which component you have selected. Pre-WF5 it does not do this, only the shown geometry is highlighted.

Any fixes out there?

I looked through the config options and could not find anything. I would have to say this is a issues that should be logged with Tech Support. It is very repeatable so they should be able to correct it.

I think you selected the White part.

Here is my part.

Which one do you think I selected: the white one or the one that is not in this assembly?

I could log this with PTC tech support if you want.

Hi Vaughn,

I have loaded WF5 M070 (Creo 1.0) to test and it does solve this very annoying problem. We use Skeleton functionality a lot and our users have been upset at the problem. My install was on XPpro but I assume XP64 will give the same good result. Hope nothing else got broken in this release but so far nothing yet.

Regards,

Brent
