NX11 CTRL-TAB related question

Gears Legend Gears Legend

Hi all,

 

In NX11 there is a new functionality to rapidly and graphically switch between the different Displayed Parts that are open your NX Session.

It looks like this:

2016-08-04_11.gifCTRL-TAB in NX11

Now imagine that the list of parts to graphically pick from is getting too long, meaning too many parts open as "Displayed Part"; No problem, you close the Displayed Parts you don't want as Displayed Part anymore. But then the part is fully closed. If you still want to see it in the assembly you then have to reopen it.

 

My question is:

Can I close a Displayed Part as being "displayed" but still keep it as "loaded" in the assembly?

Goal is to make the CTRL-TAB list shorter without having to reopen the parts in the assembly.

 

Thanks!

Frank,

I do not see any way of doing what you want currently, which is to remove some of the components in the new window management tool. Let me ask a colleague in development if there is something in the pipeline or whether it should be an ER.

Hi BevyBoy,

 

Thanks for looking in to this.

A colleague of GTAC EMEA is "standing by" to make an ER for this if needed. Smiley Wink

Frank,

Sorry about the delay in getting back to you, it seems you will have to raise an ER for this as there is no way currently to remove parts from the window list without closing them.

Hi frank,

this is a very good point and we would like to attach to your ER as well.
Could you please post the ER number if you have opened your call?

Thank you,
