"Open draft" in 3d context menu

It would be nice to add a new item on context menu in par/asm environment, to open the draft of a certain par/psm/asm file directly from 3d, without the need to browse the file system or go to the data management/where used tab.

I guess it could not very difficult to hide in this command the "where used" function, if the fast search is enabled.

The command can be added to the radial menu since context menu is not easily customizable.

Like the context menu the radial menu is available at the mouse cursor.

Which command? Where used or open draft? My interest is to avoid the extra-clicks to open the "where used" dialog just to open the draft related to a certain 3d model. The command "open draft" actually exists in the data management tab but it works only if a vault system is in use.

I focussed only on the context menu part or your question, hence suggested using the radial menu.

I have little or no knowledge about the Where Used and Open Drawing commands from the Data Management tab.

  

To answer your question in a bit 'off topic' sense, I meant using the 'Open Draft Macro' from a radial menu slot.

Hi @Alessandro

 

 

This function already is here with ST10 and setup of BiDM.

 

You will find it under the Data management tab on the left.

 

This button will let You directly open the according draft or -if there are more than one - show You a list to select from.

 

regards
Wolfgang

I don't have a vault system installed but the Open Drawing button is enabled.

Ok, after the setup of the vault, now the button works!

Thank you very much for suggestion!

Hi @Alessandro

 

 

I believe that two things needs to be defined correctly:

 

The entries in the FastSearch.txt which defines the folders for search n for drafts and the setup for Windows index services which will deliver faster results.
