Datum Feature Symbols as Standalone Annotations in Model-Based Definition
You can create datum feature symbols as standalone annotations.
User Interface Location: Click Annotate > Datum Feature Symbol.
Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can watch a video that demonstrates this capability.
You can create datum feature symbols as standalone annotations. They no longer need to be created in an annotation feature. If you create a datum feature symbol as a standalone annotation, it is added to the annotations group at the top of the Model Tree.
Standalone datum feature symbols also support some functionality that was previously only available if the annotation was part of an annotation feature.
They can have parameters which you can access by right-clicking the annotation.
They can be designated as control characteristic, which you can access from Options on the Datum Feature tab.
They can have multiple semantic references, which you can access from References on the Datum Feature tab.
Notifications about problems with standalone datum feature symbols appear in the Notification Center and are identified with status icons in the Model Tree and Detail Tree.
Any missing annotation references are also identified in the References dialog box.
