"CustomizING the User Interface in Creo Parametric"


Creo Parametric no longer uses the config.win file for UI customization, since the Ribbon is now used for most modules. So, what do we do to allow the user to customize the customize Creo Parametric User Interface? Which file is used to store the UI customization information? Where do we store the file(s)? How to load the UI customization file from the run/startup directory? What about the implementation of CAD Administrator settings for the UI?

Here are some answers: First, Creo Parametric stores the UI customization information in the creo_parametric_customization.ui file. This file is automatically saved to the folder path:

<User>\Application Data\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings

when the UI is customized for the first time. Next, set the config.pro option load_ui_customization_run_dir to yes, in order to load creo_parametric_customization.ui from (and save changes to) the run directory. UI customization settings can be exported to and imported from a file with the extension .ui

To store the CAD administrator settings, creo_parametric_customization.ui can be saved as
creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui and be placed in the installation path of Creo in
