We all learn something new every day. Even the most advanced engineers experience some challenges during the design process. At PTC University, we love learning, especially on-going learning which helps to communicate the newest features of technology that is ever-changing. You've asked all the questions, about everything from assembly functionality to 2D and 3D interface, now let's answer them - for the benefit of all!
Take Assembly for example...
Did you know that changes to View Manager items must be saved manually in Creo Elements/Pro (formerly Pro/ENGINEER)?
As you may know, View Manager provides multiple ways to view your model assemblies, features and components. View Manager functions include: view orientations; explode states; view styles; cross sections; layers; and simplified representations. Design changes made within View Manager affect only a working version of the model, which can be saved as a View Manager item–however, true design does not change.
You must manually save changes to View Manager items by right-clicking on the item and selecting save. Creo Elements/Pro displays a plus symbol (+) next to the modified item to let you know the item’s current status does not match the saved status. When saving the item, you can override/update the item’s name or save the item in its current status as a new item name.
