Default group for new workspace

When creating a new workspace in 10.0m040, the default group is the first alphabetically on the list (Cfg_lib, Doc_lib, Machine, Parts_lib). Is there a way to make the default the Machine group as that is the only group that the Creo users should be using?

RE: Default group for new workspace

Great question, I've often wondered this too. One of our libraries is alphabetically ahead of most products, I've thought of renaming it later in the alphabet, but it would be better to keep the name and simply re-order products first.


Any suggestions welcome!

I know PTC does not recommend this, but what you can do is make a .cache setup for the users. What can be done is you create a .cache folder clean on a workstation, create the workspaces (if you want add the start files, templates etc.) and use your startup scripts to copy the cache down the first time. When the user goes to add parts from library's there will be workspaces there for each, it should default to the first library workspace, but that is better than having it go into a product.
