To Edit Windchill Batch Interference Attributes in the Creo View Client
The functionality described in this topic is only available for batch interference results opened from Windchill.
The specific features that are available are dependent on the version of Windchill being used.
Sometimes the terminology in the Creo View Help is updated on a different schedule from the Windchill user interface. Although the functionality is the same, UI display text delivered from Windchill may differ from those provided in the Creo View Help.
In Creo View, you can view the batch interference results calculated in Windchill. You can examine the results and edit some of the Windchill attributes. Save the modified attribute values in Creo View and in the Windchill Interference Reports. You can edit multiple interferences simultaneously.
