NX 12 Boundary Creation


Is there any way to lock tool position to ON or TANTO before selecting the boundary? You were able to in older versions. If not, this is an extremely cumbersome task. I have hundreds of boundaries that have to be selected in the default TANTO position, then I have to go back and select each boundary and group select each member and make them ON.

I would also appriciate an answer from Siemens.  It is extra work to go back and edit a boundary member to change it from Tanto to ON.  This is a function that is very often needed in the real world.
