Allow an attribute value to become empty when editing attributes

Allow an attribute value to become empty when editing attributes

When editing attributes of EPMDocuments in Windchill from time to time I need to change an attribute to become empty afterwards and another attribute to have new values.

The second part is not a problem: I can enter whatever values I want according to the restrictions.

The first one doesnt work: if I delete the value of an attribute, i cannot continue:

Windchill tells me that I cannot remove the attribute! See also CS156238.

Gues what: I do not even want to remove the attribute! There is no reason to do so, and as a user I cannot do this anyways. I Just want the value to become 'empty'.

When making the field of the attribute empty I just want that: an empty value of an attribute.

Removing an Attribute would me need to go to type&attribute management, but that is not the case here.

It would be nice if this would be possible soon.

this seems to apply to all IBAs, as also mentioned in CS179626

I have to admit that I dont understand the logic behind that behaviour.

You can clear the value from Creo, just not from the workspace by editing attributes.
