Missing commands from Creo


Missing commands from Creo


I recently bought a new laptop and installed Creo parametric given to me by my school. When I went to start sketching I noticed that I no longer have commands like "arc", or corner rectangle, or even any drop downs menus really. The ribbon looks very simplified and I have no clue why. How can I get it back to normal?I have a ton of assignments coming up and would love to get this resolved. Any help would be greatly appreciated.questionss.PNG

It used to look like this. questionsss.PNG


I am aware of the second screenshot being from creo 1.0, but I couldn't find a similar one for creo 3.0

creo_parametric_customization.ui files are different between what the school uses and what you have.

you need to obtain a copy of what the school has and put it in your load point directory (c:\program files\ptc...\Common files\<build>\text)

Then they should look the same

I would also copy their file also (placed in the same dir as above) as there may be some mapkey definitions that are used in the ribbon.

Your "used to look like" is creo 1 and your now looks like I think is Creo 3.

Try the drop down arrow next to SKETCHER. I think commands are under there although my creo 3 shows them more similar to your creo 1 picture.

The commands are likely under the drop down arrow (like next to my SETUP tab).

If you right click in the ribbon and hit customize ribbon you can adjust to your liking.

Like Ron said, the customization is stored in a file called creo_parametric_customization.ui

You can copy the one from the schools computer to your computer.

Before you do that, you might try the restore defaults at the bottom of the options window. See below screen shot in the bottom right hand corner just above ok/cancel.
