Cosmetic Threads should be controlled by configurable table

Currently, the Cosmetic Threads tool is not controlled by a configurable table similar to the Hole tool. The tool requires parameters to be entered in place of using a configurable table. This would be managable except the parametes are Real Number for the Major Diameter. So, it not possible to drive the correct note by editing the parameters. Example Callout might be 1/2-13UNC 2A x 200.0. Instead, I get 10.720 - 0.512 UNC - 2B EXTERNAL. (The CLASS defaults to 2B and should default to 2A for external thread)

Re: Cosmetic Threads should be controlled by configurable table

In Creo 2.0 you can use the Standard Thread option you just don't get the Note with it. I don't want the Simple Thread option removed. You are currently unable to programmatically change the size of the thread/hole when using the Standard option.  I think it would be best if this Idea was Add NOTE when using the Standard Thread option for cosmetic threads.
