how in Creo 3 do I in drawings insert a note from file. I have search path set in config but command does not let me go to files with notes in it.
I'm having the same issue with built Creo 3 M060. The file path is set in the config option but the location does not comes up when clicking on the 'Notes from File'. I'm using the pro_note_dir and the other similar items see to work. The other directories are working me but that one is not. Maybe it's a typo but I'm not seeing it...
Also, why is 'Note from File' hidden inside Note? It seems to there should be two 'Note from File'. Sometimes you want to edit after selecting a note or cell and sometimes you want to create a brand new note.
It looks like it's a product idea to have it point there. Up vote it!
Also, for my example above... there is a Note folder and a Standard Notes folder in my Windchill. Calling the 'Standard Notes' folder is appropriate.
Lucas Hoogeveen has given you link to When pro_note_dir is set "Note from file" should start there. This idea contains detailed explanation of pro_note_dir implementation. The same information is available on https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS74249
Well stated. Creo's lack of consistency is mind-numbing sometimes. Pick a format takes you to the formats directory, pick a symbol takes you to the symbols directory, pick a note takes you to someplace other than the notes directory, say what?!?!
You might also have a problem if the Note(s) you're trying to add is from Windchill and was added back in the days of Intralink - see below. These old .txt files will not appear in the Note Text Directory or have the option to download from Windchill. The solution is to upload these old files again (too much to hope for it it to just work or have a button to update files).
Importing txt (and other files) file to your Workspace needs a config file:
You can then import these files to your Workspace from the internal Creo Browser. You may need an administrator to put them in the correct location in Windchill.
