I second that. It may be more appealing for new users. But, unless I am
using it incorrectly, just like a lot of the new changes it seems a lot
Don't get me wrong. There is SOME good things to the new changes. But I
can't think of any right off hand... Just joking. I do like some of the
Flyout Toolbars, however the command manager kind-of stinks.
i think that's the key, clicking twice. it can add up (to wasted time)
after a while.
i do a lot of fasteners (c'sink) and it really suks to have to hit that
check mark (pop-up mate tool bar) every time i drag a fastener in. i find
this to be major productivity flaw.
I agree with Dale...the possiblity to edit several matesat once is
nice.....the new command manager with flyout buttons is great, gives a lot
more workspace in the graphic area if You hide the descriptions

Well it seems like you now have the opportunity to choose which mate to
use....a conical coincident or a conical distance....still having it
concentrical....I guess that's why You have to decide which one to use in

Same thing if you just have parts to mate up manually. Sometimes I would
drop in a bolt, flat washer, lock washer, & nut and then defer the mates to
put in all the mates at once. The current 2004 system would do that by
default now. However, if I just have two mates to do, and want to solve the
first one before putting in the second one, it takes a click on "ok" and
then wait, and then click it again just to do the first one. You can't
click once and go on to the next one and let it catch up. That's what slows
me down the most.
In the Mate dialog box, at the very bottom UNCHECK the "Show Preview"
box in the Options section. Then to make multiple mates, click the
check at the top of the mate dialog or in the smaller box that shows
up next to your mouse (usually in the graphics area), but only click
it ONCE. You'll see each of the mates show up in the "Mates" section,
once you're done click the check again and volia! ...All the mates get
done at once.
FYI, even with the "Show Preview" checked, you can do multiple mates
at one opening of the mates dialog box. But with the preview active
your parts will move each time.
