Ability to "Save as" or "backup" a instance of a family table!

Ability to "Save as" or "backup" a instance of a family table!

It's very annoying to make a instance into a standalone part to send it to a supplier, we don't want to send the entire family table to a customer that has Creo but will uses only ONE of the instances of the entire list which can be a huge list depending of the product.

  1. Using Windchill we have to backup the entire family to work offline
  2. Disconnect Creo from server (No Server)
  3. Than open the generic file
  4. Open the instance in session
  5. remove it from the family table
  6. finally back it up...
  7. Reconnect to the server to work in another family table
  8. Do it all again

When we know all the instances to backup we can do it all together, but still a pain.

Neither backup, export from workspace or save as works while connected to a server, it saves the entire family table instead of the instance.

It should be possible to do it right from Windchill or at least from workspace without disconnect from server.

Isn't it easier to "save as" the instance to the WS as a new non family table object and then replace the instance in the assembly ?
