You know, for all that we gripe about the UI changes to pro/e, sometimes it's the little things that make me say, "Dang, that's nice." Today it was when I had to make several reference patterns, and when you have to do several in a row, you realize how sweet it is that you can do that with 4 mouse clicks with minimal mouse movement (select component in the model tree > RMB > Pattern > middle click to ok Reference pattern)
Amen to that. I get a kick every time I build a sequence of features, then go RMB / Pattern / OK / RMB / Pattern / OK / RMB / Pattern / OK - and it just works. Reference patterns are fantastic. Jonathan
I know that feeling from only last week - Yes, it's very neat: And then the project manager comes along (this morning) and says 'Of course they are all Component A, except those three are Component B and that one is Component C'. And you realise that you have to completely re-define your patterns to dimension or table patterns, because you can't white dot items out of ref patterns in WF2! Grrrr! John
Just the other day I mad a cut using quilts and was left with some small slivers of solid left. In between head scratchings of trying to come up with a plan to get rid of them, I poked around and found the "remove" feature. Click the surface, click remove, MMB done. Presto! Jaw-dropping. When did they add that gem?
The designer in ear-shot, in response to my "I freakin' love Pro/E!" said, "when are you going to make up your mind?" (referring to the incidence of my exclaiming first love, then hate... repeat 10x per day)
