Hello! Sorry for this silly question. I want to use the Del-Key in NXCAM. Example: I select an operation and I want to remove this operation. If I push the Del-Key I get

Can I change this?

The selection in the ONT is working differently than with other navigators, since it is one of two navigators that has multiple views.

Have you found a menu entry for this delete action? If so, have you already tried to assign the DEL key to it?

Use Right Button of Mouse and - Delete.

I had a same wishes for first 10 years my Unigraphics (NX) experience....

Re: Want to use the Del-Key in NXCAM

Hello! Thank you for your informations. I've made some experiments.

The "Delete"-Key you can't assign, it's blocked with the command "UG_EDIT_DELETE". It's possible to create a different Shortcut e.g. "Alt+Delete" to delete an operation, this is the command "UG_CAM_ONT_DELETE".

 

I would like to know why "Delete" is blocked. The "Insert"-Key has no default-function. It would be possible to assign the Insert-Key with the "UG_CAM_ONT_DELETE"-Key. Is this logical?

 

Does anyone use the "Delete"-Key with the blocked function "UG_EDIT_DELETE"? I can't imagine.

 

In my oppinion it makes no sense to assign the "Delete"-Key with such a strange command like "UG_EDIT_DELETE".

 

Re: Want to use the Del-Key in NXCAM

UG_EDIT_DELETE is the regular delete action for regular NX objects.

CAM objects are special and have their own delete option.

You may request an enhancement at GTAC to allow deletion of all NX objects with the regular NX delete function.

Re: Want to use the Del-Key in NXCAM

The Delete key in NX deletes the object that is selected in the graphics screen. In CAM, there are no NX objects in the graphics screen, so the delete key has nothing to delete. In some other applications, it looks like the delete key is deleting what is selected in the navigator, because there is a direct connection between the navigator and the graphics.
