We recently switched to Creo2 from WF and are experiencing the pain of customization in multiple interfaces.
There have been a lot of complaints written on this forum about the Ribbon interface, but I cannot see anyone who has shared their own .ui customization file(s) to improve the interface. Does anyone have Ribbon customization tab(s) that they like and are willing to share?
If so can you upload one of the.ui files:
So far I have only done one for our mapkeys, but would like to create a tab for common commands (dwg, asm, prt, etc). If I come up with one I will post, but perhaps people can post their own for people try try and hopefully ease the pain of transition to Creo2 (and from these files perhaps give PTC some more constructive ideas).
I have dabbled a bit.
The one I would really like to get to modify is the "file" tab. it is defeating our ideology of doing it "one way only" with regards to starting files - but I've only just begun to start this endeavor.
Anyway, I have enclosed a 7z zip file that contains:
the local config.pro - it's just mapkey instructions,
our master config.win,
the admin-ui file that can be renamed without the "admin" in the filename,
and a .dop file which will help when doing the print mapkey "caf".
put all these in your local folder.
I like to add my favorite command to the "Quick Access Toolbar", these command will not affect when you switch the Ribbon from one to another.
You can find any command when you select "all commands" from "Choose commands from:"
Thanks for uploading Ron! Unfortunately I am unable to open the 7z type compression, however since you attached the .ui file in your latest response I will try that one.
go to http://www.7-zip.org/download.html and download
|.zip||32-bit||7-Zip Command Line Version|
put .7z file in the same directory
open Command prompt and change directory to see .7z file
cd /D path_to_your_dir
in Command prompt windows run the following command
7za.exe x your_file.7z
I broke them out.
put the ui in the start directory
put the other three in the folder where you have your local config.pro goes to.
(oh, you should rename your original local config.pro before you copy this one on top.)
Thanks for the method. Unfortunately the download website is also blocked. If this makes you think of the IT dept in Dilbert cartoons, you are not alone.
