incorporating any changes made since the last time the model

Understanding Regeneration and Auto Regeneration

When you edit features in Creo Parametric, you are editing dimension
values which control the geometry. After you edit a feature’s dimensions, the
function recalculates the model geometry, incorporating any
changes made since the last time the model was saved or regenerated. It is
necessary to regenerate a model after you have edited it.
Auto Regenerate eliminates the need to regenerate the model after making
changes. Rather, the model is automatically regenerated dynamically while
models are edited.
By default, Auto Regenerate is enabled. However, if you wish to make
multiple changes to a feature or features before regenerating the model,
you can toggle Auto Regenerate off temporarily. When Auto Regenerate
is toggled off, you can only edit dimensions directly, and all draggers are
toggled off. You also cannot drag section entities.
When you are ready for the model to regenerate, toggle Auto Regenerate
