NX 9 Customizing Resource Bar


I recently moved to a laptop with a docking station and I want to find a way to get the operation navigator, part navigator, and assembly navigators to switch positions when going from single to multiple monitors and vice versa.


This happens in all modes but manufacturing is where I spend the majority of my time. I have already tried setting up two seperate roles, but the position of the navigators don't go from the second monitor to the primary monitor when I change inbetween them.


Is there any way to do this?

I think window positions are stored in the registry (assuming you are Windows).

You may have to save 2 REG files of "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX\9.0"  (possibly you can limit them to just some of the sub-keys).


Or try to "reset window position" before loadiing your role?

Re: NX 9 Customizing Resource Bar

I'm not sure what you can do in NX9, but in NX10 there are new options for the resource bar preference:

  • Overlap on Second Monitor
  • Dock on Second Monitor
