In NX11 this function has been removed. Only in NX10 it has been available

There is no option or any other way to turn on the classic toolbars staring in NX 11. The ribbon bar is the only interface moving forward as of now.

One hint I give our users - use the "border bars" around the graphics screen.

E.g. if you have you "navigator" windows to the left...

Any button you regularly use that is NOT on the "Home" tab for the application, add it to the "left" border bar (Right-click on icon -> Add to XXX border bar.  If you can't find an icon to do this, use command finder to find the command, then in command finder "results" window: Right-click on icon -> Add to XXX border bar)

Note border bars are application specific!

First ones I do are the "other" applications you use (e.g. in modeling, I add drafting & manufacturing)

Next ones are layer control & Info object

I do a lot of work on post processors, so I add the "Log file" (to debug when post dies)

Others as appropriate for the way you use NX.
