Using ordered modelling it takes approx 7 mouse clicks to change the diameter of a hole, is there a quick way to do this? In the syncro environment it's far easier but for the type of modelling I do the syncronous technology dosen't work, because intersecting holes cannot be pulled apart, which is vital to the design process workflow that is used.
Any help on this would be great!

are you using dynamic edit?
sound slike you must be editing the profile.
Try dynamic edit - should save some clicks
Easiest way to do this quickly is through the Variable Table. The Hole sizes for each group of holes will be listed and can be changed by typing new values into the cells. Best of all you can leave VT up while your modeling.
Hi Grundey, tried the variable table before there seemed to be no way to find the correct entry by selecting the various features on the model, therefore it's almost impossible to find the item on the variable table, it maybe ok for small models but trying to find one hole in thousands is a needle in a haystack, thanks for your input.
Hi M Johnson, I've tried this although breifly in the past and again just to be certain I basically could not detach, I just get an error saying the solution is invalid, still this is a very combersome way to produce models. I appreciate your efforts on this, but I am begining to loose hope that there is a solution available. I'm not an expert but i think some custom programming may be the only way to try and speed this up, quite frustrating as it only takes 2 clicks in syncro.
I Have looked at the ST7 re-hash of the hole command, does anybody know if it still requires multiple mouse clicks to adjust hole diameter or has this been improved??
