    According to the Menu Mapper, Tweak replace and several other surface
    functions were combined into 'Edit>Offset'. It's true, you can do many
    things with this new function. Make friends with 'Edit>Offset'.

    For a replace, you pick the surface to be replaced, go to Edit>Offset. Don't
    worry about the offset surface it shows you. Go to the drop down list box
    which says Standard and click the arrow. Pick Replace and pick the replacing
    surface. Click the green OK check mark and you're done.

    It's good to try out this new feature of Pro/e help called Menu Mapper to
    find out what's happened to the stuff you can't find in Wildfire. Chances
    are they didn't lose it. If you don't get the Web Browser at start up, you
    can go to>user area>new technology. On the left, you select the
    module you're using and the year you're upgrading from. You find the menu
    that you need translated into Wildfire and it gives you some information
    about the new location and any new functionality. It won't tell you how to
    use it, but it'll get you where you're going.

    Correction: I missed a step in the page references to Menu Mapper's
    location. It should read>user area>new technology>Pro/Engineer Wildfire Webtools. This is
    where you'll find Menu Mapper.

    So what's the benefit of the new Wildfire? Other than you can't find
    anything and it takes you twice as long to do anything until you survive the
    learning curve from the previous versions. Personally I don't like it.
    I'll get used to it, but I don't like it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Yes I would agree there are some rough edges, but Wildfire seems a whole
    lot faster to me. Granted I'm not all that much of a power user but it
    seems to be a lot less clicking and I don't have to chase the Tree all
    over the screen any more!! :cool: -Dan
