*FACEPALM* Trying to export a STEP file in Creo 4 and other gripes.

As usual, when they revised the GUI (Bold New Graphics!), they completely FUBAR'd things.  I'm simply trying to export a STEP file and NEED to pick a specific CS....aaaaand I can't.  This interface $uck$!  For some reason the ability to pick a CS is greyed out.  What?????  This is something we NEED to do often.  Is there an "optional" module I need or something?  I'm p!$$ed.

Oh, and in detailing mode the ribbon is somehow even WORSE than before!  Man, I didn't think it was possible to make the ribbon worse, but they managed it.  I don't know whether to give PTC kudos for that or not...(sarcasm).

I should have stayed on Creo 3, and just gone to M180.  So, when I lease Creo for personal use shortly, I'm not going to bother with Creo 4 since it's such a large step BACKWARD...

 

SRSLY PTC???

You need to remove annotation elements from the export, then you can pick an alternate coordinate system.

Thanks Tom!

*facepalm*  Some "enhancement"...  For some reason exporting the annotations is our default...
