NX 11 Role

Valued Contributor

NX8.5 when using roles had a 'Save As' option.

We could save the role to a specified location and then import it onto other machines.

 

NX11 doesn't.

We now have to find where NX hides the role, copy it to a location that can be accessed by all, then install.

A lot of wasted time.

 

'Save As'  needs to be brought back !!!!

Hi @jadodaro,

 

NX8.5 when using roles had a 'Save As' option.

 

We could save the role to a specified location and then import it onto other machines.

I just checked NX8.5 and I don't see this option (I also checked NX7.5 and NX9.0).

 

  • Right clicking in the Roles palette gives the options: New User Role, New Palette, Open, Refresh, Customize and View.
    • New User Role has no option to define the path.
  • Right clicking a Custom User Role give the options: Apply, Delete, Edit, Save Role, Copy.
    • Edit has no option for Save As
  •  Tools > Customize displays the current role and has options for Load and Create.
    • Load lets you define a path to load an existing role
    • Create lets you define the path for a new role.
    • This changed starting NX10 and is now found using Preferences > User Interface.

To locate a custom role select it from the palette and then select: 'File > Help > Log File' and scroll to the bottom of the log to the line that starts "ROLE::LOAD", it will read something similar to:

Role from C:\Users\jadodaro\AppData\Local\Siemens\NX110\roles\nx_role0.mtx file was loaded

 

To load a custom role in NX11, select "Preferences > User Interface > Roles > Load Role".

 

If you can demonstrate the Save As behavior in NX8.5, contact GTAC and open an IR to have them investigate further.

 

Regards, Ben

Hi Jadodaro,

 

Try "CTRL" + "2"

It will get you to this dialog:

(it also shows the next dialog when creating a new role)

2017-04-22_18.gifNX11 User Interface Preferences, Roles

 

I always use this method when making Roles or recalling them.

I hope this can help you.

Thanks for the info.

 

Apparently I forgot that Beta testing had already started our NX8.5 role, I wasn't involved with that.

Thanks, Frank_NX, that helps.
