Do you take half a shower? Do you take out half the garbage?
When you go to a restaurant, do you expect your meal to be half cooked?
If the answers to the above questions are no, then why do you implement half working features?
It might be helpful to list some specific "half baked" features you are having issues with. This sounds less like a suggestion and more like a rant without more specific information.
I'll give one: A couple releases ago they added the ability to include the leading zero to the architectural units, i.e. 1'-1/2" can be displayed as 1'-0 1/2".
The parts lists formatting (Format Column) does not have the ability to include this leading zero.... Why not?
I'll give another one that grips me... A few releases back they introduced the ability to pattern features (in a ipt) in both directions about a midplane. It only works in ipts. We still can't do that with assembly features, assembled components or machined features in a weldment..... Very annoying to not have the consistency.
Inventor 2012 they added part representations. Except when attempting to use them one would quickly discover they weren't working. Why? According to an Autodesk dev: "yeah it isn't fully hooked up".
Content center for years has had parts with oddball values.
The O-Ring design accelerator suffers from wacky values.
Autodesk job processor performance is abysmal.
The IPN environment was abandoned years ago regarding any sort of improvements.
Vault Pro 2012 does not send out emails when a comment is added to a change order.
Important functionality that exists & yet is not working.
IAM... Browser Sort Tool. Sometimes it sorts... sometimes if fails. Reason being either invalid characters in the tree names or component patterns. 1. It should sort any name that is allowed in the tree. 2. Component patterns have been around for quite a while, you would think that it could handle those.
