User Interface Location: Click Annotate > Datum Target.
Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can watch a video that demonstrates this capability.
Workflows for creating and editing datum target annotations are faster and more intuitive. It is no longer required to have a set datum in the model before creating a datum target. When you create a datum target you immediately see a preview attached to the pointer. You can drag this preview to select the leader attachment location. You can pick a location on a surface or edge or you can pick a datum point. When you select a datum target, the Datum Target tab opens automatically. When the datum target is no longer selected, the Datum Target tab closes automatically. You can modify the placement of the datum target annotation by dragging it. If the leader is placed on a model surface, you can drag the attachment point to another location on the surface. To choose a different reference for attachment of the leader you can right-click the datum target and select Change Reference.
