HELLO PRO-E USERS



IAM A REGULAR PRO-E USER


I FACE WITH A REGULAR PROBLEM WHILE USING PRO-E FILES



WHEN I OPEN THEPRO-E APPLICATION FOR THE 1ST TIMEAND IF I OPEN ANY PART OR ASSEMBLY FILE,


THE PRO-E PART OPENS WITH ALLTHE DATUMPLANES, CURVES AND AXISVISIBLE


ALSO THE HIDDENLAYERS ARE ALL VISIBLE BY DEFAULT



IF IT IS A SMALL PART IT IS OK WE CAN HIDEALL THE ITEMSMANUALLY


BUT SINCE I DEAL WITH COMPLICATED MODELS IT TAKES A LONG TIME TO HIDE ALL THE ITEMS


SO CAN ANY ONE SUGGEST A SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM


I NEED THE PRO-E PART FILES WITH ALL THE PLANES, AXIS, CURVES AND REQUIRED LAYERS AS HIDDEN WHILE OPENING IN A FRESH MODE


IT WILL BE VERY USEFUL IF ANYONE GIVES ME A SUITABLE SUGGESTION

We use the following mapkey which works great
for the upper level assemblies we create:


mapkey $F11 @MAPKEY_LABELAll Planes Layers Off;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`1 `View`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Close `main_dlg_cur` `MenuBar1`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `main_dlg_cur` `View.psh_view_lyrs`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `min_layers` `AssyTree`1 `node0:01_PLANES`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `min_layers` `AssyTree`2 `node0:01_PLANES` `node0:pLANES`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `min_layers` `MakeBlank`;~ Activate `min_layers` `RepaintBtn`;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Activate `min_layers` `CloseBtn`;

Arun,


A long term solution is to have the datum layers created automatic in your startup part. Therefore, if you or other individual open the part the datums will be turn off.

Luis is right, I have my start parts automatically create layers so they can be turned off all at once, if needed.

swcalvert is correct. In config.pro: "axis_display no" "datum_display no" "datum_point_display no" "display_coordinate_sys no" "datum_point_tag_display no"


On the layer issue. I think you are confusing component display with layers. If you choose, "View > Layers" and have components of an assembly on a layer, you can blank these layers and select "Save Status" after making layers Shown/Blanked. The next time you call the assembly up in session, how you "Saved Status" will dictate how components are displayed.
