Yeah it's as soon as you click on edit design when you are editing the pro/program
It does a few undesirable things.
1- truncates lines and makes them unable to evaluate (although the relations still calculate fine)
2- it also capitalizes all the text. So Part_Length changes to PART_LENGTH
3- Changes most* symbols, from "text symbol", back to its letter value. (see below images)
Interesting. Is this just happening in the Pro/PROGRAM editor or are you seeing this in the "normal" relations editor too? Has support given you a SPR number or said when they think it will be fixed?
Sounds like they altered how data about the program is stored and failed to change the editor to match. It's also possible they replaced the old program editor with a new one without paying attention to special functions the old one had. It's *like* they dropped to a 6-bit editor, which is why there's no lower case, though I have no idea why anyone would do that. Shades of dial-up 300 Baud modems.
Can you use an external editor? The Program editor makes a back-up copy so that it can restore the previous working version. You might be able to rework that and then force the editted version to have an error and do a restore of the editted back-up. Obviously, it's working with less safety net and you can make a back-up of the back-up to help.
I can change from the note pad default editor to a custom one like notepad++, but it still does the reformatting.
Just wanted to let you know that the problem has been mostly solved.
as of Creo 5.0 you can now evaluate multi-line equations and logic statements.
I would have preferred that it just didn't truncate at all but this is an acceptable solution.
Thanks for all the support.
