can the select assembly part number be display in the message log?

Amethyst

can the select assembly part number be display in the message log?

Hello to all

in Creo 2.0 I used to select a part or an assembly in my graphic window, and automatically the selected item part number was displayed in the message log

i was abble also to select a part and with the select 'parent feature' to select any level above (+1) and the number of this selected sub assembly was always in the message log window

easy then to copy/past (ctrl+c  ctrl+v )this number and to made search in Windchill or to put this part number in a excel  etc

since Creo 4.0 I can only see the part number of the select item

if I use the select parent , the tree is highlighted, yes but the assembly  number doesn't come in the log windows

do you have a solution for me please?

 

thanks

Try setting config.pro option provide_pick_message_always to yes

Here's a pretty nice mapkey that copies a selected object's file name to your clipboard. The mapkey will work in part or assembly mode. You can adjust the mapkey to copy other attributes to your clipboard as well. To do that, replace the red text with whichever attribute you'd like to be able to copy.

 

!!!COPY CURRENT PART OR ASSEMBLY FILE NAME
mapkey CCN @MAPKEY_LABELCOPY CURRENT NAME;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Command `ProCmdMakeActive`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Command `ProCmdMmRels` ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `relation_dlg` `PBEvaluate`;\
