I would like to use JT2Go Viewer since our CAD Work is done in NX and PMI rich data could be made portable easy with the viewer.
Now when I start the viewer and try to open a file there appears to be an Windows 3.1 Dialog where I am unable to find my files (no links, no favourites, no recent files)
Have I just picked a 10 year old version there or can this appearance somehow be changed back to today's OS Level?
You will find the same 'Old Open' dialog in TCVis also. As JT2Go is based on the TCVis, so it may be as designed. Lets expect someone from Siemens will mention the reason for the same.
Testing: NX 10 | NX 11 | Teamcenter-NX Integration
Teamcenter 11.2 | TC Vis 11.3 | Active Workspace 3.2
The file open dialog is unchanged. What we have makes use of the "users area" to navigate back to repeat locations. Have you tried that?
I will try it out.
Generally the program user likes to use good dialogs and if the exist on OS level already, he will never want to look for other implementations of the already existing functionallity somewhere else. That would be redundant.
Quite old style and very slow as well.
I wanted to do a quick demo to IT collegues but I think they will laugh as soon as I show such a window to open files and wait 1 to 2 minutes to change directory.
Anyone can help me?
The best workaround for me is:
Adobe Reader is universal
You need Adobe Acrobat that has a terrible file dialog as well, not win 3.1 style but a lot of quirks with inferred file saving paths
JT is the common language of PLM and is the world’s most widely used 3D format. JT is the first ISO International Standard ( IS 14306-1) for 3D visualization and collaboration. Compact and accurate, JT is used throughout the product development lifecycle in all major industries to communicate the critical design information typically locked up inside a CAD file.
Siemens PLM Software customers rely on JT to be the most robust 3D visualization format available.
