Starting from Creo 9.0, it streamlines the surface finish placement and editing workflows, and makes them consistent with other annotation types. You get an immediate preview, consolidated placement options, a faster surface finish placement with repeat mode, and an easy customization.

When you create or edit a surface finish in a model or a drawing, a tab related to the surface finish opens. The tab contains all the commands needed for the customization of that surface finish. Multiple surface finish placement options are available, and an immediate preview is presented in the graphics area. The Repeat Mode command allows you to continue placing multiple surface finish instances in one action.

The default surface finish placement type is automatic, and it is defined according to the selected reference type (with leader, free, or offset) and the environment that you are working in (model or drawing).
