Make the WTtr Text Reference group for Creo Elements Direct Drafting and Modeling WorkGroup Managers configurable

Make the WTtr Text Reference group for Creo Elements Direct Drafting and Modeling WorkGroup Managers configurable

At the moment the Text Reference Group or Logical Tabel name that is used for storing and updating attribute Text References in the Drafting drawings is hard coded in the WorkGroup Manager to: WTtr

This is fine for new users.

But there is a large installed base that have a lot of Drawings with database Text References in another group name. For instance: tb for Model Manager or Design Management users.

It is possible to map Windchill attributes to the existing Text Reference names. But it is not possible to reuse the existing group name in the Drawing.

All the existing Drawings have to be modified to match the WorkGroup Managers hard coded WTtr group name.

If it were possible to change this WTtr value, for instance in the wgmclient.ini file, all drawings could be reused directly. For instance by Bulk loading them.

Technically is would be possible to change the Text references in between the load and the update of the values with a Drafting macro.

But at the moment it is not possible to influence the load process.
