Language journal language

How can I make NX to keep/save my selected language for journals? I must re-select the language after every NX restart now which is annoying!

 

Thanks in advance.

you can set it in your customer defaults.

Set the language you want.

Thanks for your replies. I already know how to set the language. My question is how to make NX to save this setting. Now I should set the language everytime I restart NX. Where this setting is saved? Should I use registry or teplate or etc to save the setting?

Re: Language journal language

You are setting in Customer Default, and not in Preferences - correct?

You can go to Manage Current Settings (the eye in the upper right) and confirm this.

 

Set the customer default, exit NX, start NX, and check the customer default.

If your setting was not saved, then your site could have this restricted, so talk to your system administrator and be sure this is something you can change..

You are so right! I was changing it in Preferences. It is now saved.

Do you know where the setting in Customer Default are saved (I tried registry and also "user\AppData\Local\Siemens\NX100\" folder, but I couldn't find anything related to the journal language saved there)?

Also I appreciate if you let me know what is the difference between Customer Default and Preferences?

Thanks in advance.

The next time you open NX:

- Menu -> Help -> Log file

- search for "dpv" - it will tell you where the *_user.dpv file is being loaded from.

Customer defaults are saved in files. There are several teirs that override the previous one - after our OOTB, you could have site, group, and user settings. Ken told you how to find your individual defaults. There is to modify the files - Use the customer defaults user interface.

 

It is best to read the help, but in summary, customer defaults are set before NX starts, and are either part or session defaults. Preferences can be changed in the current NX session.

 

Note that some defaults come from the part file templates when you go to File > New.
