Act Owner
Switches on or off highlighting of the active owner.
When Act Owner is clicked, all drawing elements not owned by the active owner of the current operation are drawn in gray. The active owner, and all elements owned by it, are displayed in the usual colors. This can be useful, for example, when adding text or symbols to a view; the elements of the view are easily distinguished from the other drawing elements. See Highlight owners for more information.
While Act Owner clicked, the Owner Check message ("Clicked point is not within the specified owner.") is suppressed.
To switch on or off a display characteristic, open the Show dialog box and click or clear the required option.
Creo Elements/Direct Annotation redraws the contents of the viewport after you switch on or off the characteristic.
