So, Creo sucks...

I'm learning CREO 3.  WOW!  I can't tell you how bad it is (although I do get to use ZTG finally!!!).


It's just so damn clumsy.  For instance, when you are sketching and want to grab a reference such as an edge or surface off of existing model geometry to convert entities, you just do it.  Not in Creo.  You have to stop, go into a mode where you define references, for instance an axis is not a reference until you define it, then go back to what you were doing.  Really?  I get that the software worked that way back when it was developed 30 years ago, but you haven't fixed it since then??   What, your users aren't as demanding as us SolidWorks users?  I'm going to have to go over to the Creo forum and raise some hell.


It doesn't have very good in-context menus (you're always looking all over for the simplest thing), very little intuitive feel, does not leverage Explorer very well, and so on. 


I had heard about how clunky it was, but figured they would eventually work out the functionality to match other competitors such as SWX and Fusion and even now OnShape.  Not so!  Well they did buy Onshape recently, so maybe they can steal some tech from them.


All I know is my mouse buttons are going to wear out in about a quarter of the time with all of these extra clicks.


Anyone here PREFER Creo?  Anything to look out for?
