Fast exit from Creo 4 Sketcher

Fast exit from Creo 4 Sketcher

Salut,

comparing Creo 4 and Creo 2 sketcher "fast" exit way:

 

Creo 2

ESC when no section created - directly exit to model environment (great/fast/logic function)

ESC when some section created - shows prompt to exit dialog (same like to hit Cancel)

 

Creo 4

ESC when no section created - not working at all (why ???!??)

ESC when some section created - not working (have to hit Cancel to get exit dialog)

 

Is there a way (except mapkey) how to achieve the same behaviour in C4 like it was in C2 ?

When designer change his mind and want to leave C4 sketcher fast that trick from C2 is not available so C4 is slower...

You can create a ticket for tech support to report this missing functionality. 

Re: Fast exit from Creo 4 Sketcher

I am 99% sure this was intentionally removed.  I vaguely remember sitting through a presentation where one of the product managers talked about making this change but I can't find any documentation supporting it.

 

The help documentation for Creo Simulate still claims 'ESC' should work, but I'm guessing someone just failed to update it.

Re: Fast exit from Creo 4 Sketcher

I like "Esc" getting me out of a particular FUNCTION within sketcher (i.e. creating a line), I do NOT like "Esc" getting me out of sketcher itself.  So, to me, that's good news as I don't WANT a "fast exit".
