This is controlled through the PAX files. The following link is a good place to start.

Re: Hiding NX-->file-->Tab menu

Thanks Scott

These pac file control each tab, is there any single config containing the display of these tabs, where i can selectively hide the tabs?

Not that I have seen.  If a pax file exits in the folder, the tab will be shown, so it's an all or nothing deal, not user selectable.

Hi @nesthome!

For each application/tab, there are separate PAX files.

You have to edit the individual PAX file. I checked it for Modeling and Drawing tab, Just add "<! --" in PAX file (Comment out for XML) as shown in the image. Edit the respective PAX files, Save and restart NX, you will not see those tabs.

Set the variable UGII_TEMPLATE_DIR to a folder.
Copy the PAX file and the templates file into that folder.
When starting NX it will only show the things that are in that folder.
