Layout configuration file


Hello everyone,

just a quick one. I am changing my computer, reinstalling the NX8 and I don´t want to loose my layout settings. The icons and other settings.

Is there a configuration file or group of files, that I can find in NX directory and copy them?

Thank you so much for your help.


Kind Regards

In the %APPDATA% folder there is a folder called Unigraphics Solutions, which contains all your settings.


I would save a custom role and only migrate that to the next release.

Usually it is best to start with an OOTB role, since there are always additions that you will not get, when you migrate an old role.
