Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

You're correct. Grrr....I wish I took screenshots of what happened before as I wouldn't have written "Strange I wasn't aware of this before" when I checked it. Now I can't recreate the same behaviour...?

Guess you're working with some kind of alpha build then and it's one of it's "features" maybe?

BTW, did I understand you correctly, that now RMB menu have different options for model tree and graphics window? I'm not sure if I like this idea, because it adds a feeling of inconsistency to the menus (yeah, I know, nothing new really in ProE/Creo), but maybe I'd need to check how it works. So far RMB menu was the same regardless of place it was invoked and it feels better that way.

No the behaviour was in Creo 2.0.

The screenshot is from recorded PTC Live keynote session. I'm not doing any alpha testing. I guess since 3.0 release is around 1 year ahead of us this might not be the final design of RMB commands.

Hi everyone...

I haven't forgotten about you. I'm trying to clear out a backlog of work that has kept me very busy over the past couple of weeks. I'll get back to responding to each of your requests, adding them to the master list, and preparing for the face-to-face Technical Committee meetings within the next few days.

Thanks for your patience!

Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

a lot of good things mentioned.

one that isn't technical by any means is the amount of white the Creo interface has! It's blinding with no way to control it. I have a coworker that is light sensitive and he started getting headaches when we moved to Creo.

please help our eyes!

Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

i totally agree on this. never understood why they fiddle with background color and interface sooooooooo much!

Re: Enhancement Requests for Creo - Summer 2013 TC Meetings

Thanks Ryan (and Rohit)... I totally agree and I took this directly to the interface designers (or at least one of them). I clicked between Default and the Black and White color choices and asked if he could tell the difference.

Your choices for colors now are: Brilliant White, Slighly less brilliant but still annoying white, dark or... Custom which is basically saying "Figure it out yourself". But it's excessively tough to get something that even approximates the old colors.

I think I went off for about 10 minutes on colors. I went all the way back to Rev 9 and reviewed all of the color changes and asked why they kept fiddling with it. Or... if they insist on fiddling with it, at least give us the old color schemes as an option. We got ripped off in Creo... you get white... or nothing.

Thanks!

...to say nothing about the hidden option: USE_PRE_WILDFIRE_ENTITY_COLOR YES in the SCL file

...for which I never received an acceptable response from CS when I inquired as to its meaning.

This was the configuration I ended up with after a lot of research:
