Dialog window size

Hi,

is there a way for NX (currently NX11) to save / remember dialog size? I know one can set width, but that would have a global effect, all dialogs would be wide. And most of dialogs are pretty OK. But "Add Component" dialog size is so small its anoying. And it resets to its original size every time its closed and opened.

 

And related one is "Component Preview" window, this one at least remembers its size for the session. But still resets to a tiny window with new session.

 

Below: original vs. IMO proper size for Add Component dialog size.

There is existing ER#7961860 for the dialogs to remember their size.

* Short Description of desired enhancement: <Problem rather than a solution>
It is impossible to have NX remember the size of certain dialogues if they are made taller and/or wider

* What activity in your process is the product not able to currently handle?
We want to stop having to resize dialogues every time we use them

* What result are you trying to achieve? (Please provide as many details as possible.)
We what to have dialogues remember their size across sessions

* Do you currently have a workaround?
No

* Do you have a proposal for the solution you envision Siemens PLM providing for this capability?
No

* What is the level of productivity gained from such an enhancement?
HIGH, reduce the time to resize dialogues to be able to work with them efficiently, usability

* Other information:

The above is the ER text. Ask GTAC to be added to the ER as "Me too" Smiley Wink

How do I locate the site for ERs?

Unfortunately there is no site to search through existing ER's. Please consider contacting GTAC with your suggestions - if they already exist your contact information will be added to the existing ER so that you are notified of any changes. If your suggestions have not yet been requested a new ER will be created on your behalf.

Regards, Ben

OK, so how exactly? First I navigate here:
https://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en/products/nx/current_customer.shtml
From there I get myself to:
https://solutions.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/ (one can search some solutions DB)
http://qtac.ugs.com/logir/ (this one is dead)
https://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/support/gtac/ (I guess its a home site for GTAC)

And I can't find anything ER related. Where can I send my ER?

Create or Update incident report? That is apperantly not an option (no first level support) since we contrcted via reseller. They help us if we run into trouble, but I doubt reseller can do anything about ERs Smiley Happy

The basic procedure is

- log an IR (in the IR text, you can say "I think this is an ER" or "this is a 'me too' on ER xxxx")

- the IR gets converted to an ER

 

What I don't know is how people with VARs deal with this (I deal directly w/ Siemens).

You should be able to file an issue with your VAR, and the VAR should be able to push that back to Siemens, but I don't know...
