Try copying the user.mtx file. Backup your old one first.
Edit: I tried both DialogMemory.dlx and the user.mtx, and it did not retain the settings. These settings must reside somewhere else.
Guessing...In the registry
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
All navigator layouts are stored in the registry.
The ONT for NX12 for example is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\NX\12.0\General\ONT
You could export that key and import on a new system, to copy the layout of the ONT.
You may also send a "me too" enhancement request for easier deployment of navigator columns to GTAC.
One of the existing enhancement requests has the number 1898218.
