I have a very annoying thing with solid edge and would like to know if there is someone else sharing my problem...
After finishing a command solid edge restarts the same command again. i.e. after placing and finishing a hole or a plane i am again at the beginning of the command. I often have to click on the select command to go on with my work because without,i.e., i can not select a feature in the edgebar to modify it. This is terrible...
But not in the synchronous environment - there is the workflow optimized. After creating a feature like a hole, plane, extrude, ... the command automaticly will be terminated. And thats good!
Why not also in the ordered environment?!?
Can somebody comprehend this?
As a workaround, I'd suggest using the radial menu, its just a drag in the NW direction and soon you will find doing it habitually at the end of every command.
Give it a try, I am sure you will find it far less terrible than current situation.
A little consideration will show that Solid Edge provided last command continuation with a purpose - so you don't need to restart the command again. Just an individual perspective and perception. Hope you find it useful.
The radial menu could be a workaround - if it will response fast and constent in every situation. But this is not the case - another problem..
Anyway, the general problem still exist. I have to pick select after every command to ensure that i can use solid edge without any annoying issues...
sorry, but i have to disagree. You dont have to click more times. It is unusual to create two, three or more extrustion oder cutouts successively. It is more usual to create different features in sequence.
If we could change this behavior you could easily go on with every feature or situation you want - you just have to click on the wanted command or action. Today you have to know, "...when do i have to terminate the command, or not?"
After some failures you terminate EVERY finished command automaticaly by our own. And this produces many more clicks...
@Siemens PLM: please change this behavior in one of the next releases (optionally)
I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and it's muscle memory for me to just jab the ESC key to cancel the next feature if I have to go into a different command. Easier and faster than mousing up to the cancel button.
