"Customization of the User Interface in Creo Parametric 1.0."

Creo Parametric does not use config.win for UI customization for all Ribbon based modules, so how do we customize Creo Parametric User Interface? Which file is used to store the UI customization information? In which directory is the UI customization file stored? How to load the UI customization file from the run/startup directory? How to implement and provide CAD Administrator settings for the UI?

Answers:

  • Creo Parametric stores the UI customization information in the creo_parametric_customization.ui file
  • creo_parametric_customization.ui¬† is automatically¬† saved to the folder path: <User>\Application Data\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings when the UI is customized for the first time
  • 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 Common Files\ ... \text
  • The creo_parametric_customization.ui file overrides the creo_parametric_admin_customization.ui file
