Change position of part parameters

Change position of part parameters

Hi guys,

 

I'm having some exsisting parts and assemblies in Creo3.0, these parts do have parameters. Now I'd like to create some new parameters in these parts. When I open the parameter-list, the existing parameters are sorted in the way they have been created. But now I'd like to put some parameters in between some existing parameters. Does anyone know how to do that, without deleting and recreating the existing parameters?

Hello, am i missing something here? If all you want to do is move up a newly created parameter then use the arrow keys at the right hand side. See attached image.

Re: Change position of part parameters

By default they are sorted by their order of creation, I guess. You can change the order by clicking on the different columns, and they'll be sorted by the column in ascending or descending order. You can't "insert" a new parameter between two others, but with the ability to sort, maybe it doesn't matter.

Re: Change position of part parameters

Hi Ken,

 

thanks for your reply. I already did know that we can sort them. But the problem is that we are used to have them in orde of creation (without any sorting filter). And we like this orde, but we only want to have one parameter in between the others...

Hi Martin,

 

thanks for your reply. But this is the same as Ken is proposing. Problem is that this isn't the solution we are looking for...

Re: Change position of part parameters

Adding a new parameter in the middle (which is not possible) will mess up your 'the look we are used to' display anyway. With that list, it may be time to sort them by name and save your updated start part. Your users will get used to the sorted list in a few days. This is a personal preference and those can not play any influence into software design.

Instead of the default "Filter_By" create a new one and order to your own liking...

Hi John,

 

Great, I think that's the answer I was waiting for Smiley Happy

Thanks a lot. This will help me a lot!

Re: Change position of part parameters

Happy that was the answer you were looking for. I have parameters listed in a particular order too. I think i am right in saying that Creo does not always save a newly created parameter in the position you move it to. If this happens just simply move back to where you require it & it should stay put second time around.
