You can add new palettes in Menu > Preferences > Palettes.

Is this what you are looking for?

I don't know if this is possible, but for sure it is not recommended.

 

We moved the help out fo the resource bar to a separate browser in NX5 for a lot of very good reasons. The layout does not fit well in a narrow pane, and a lot of excess resources were consumed by NX.

HI Mark,

Yes this is possible, I am having this tab when I open NX in my machine, but in other machine NX, it is not found. I am missing some setup or configuration. I am unable to figure it how I did for my machine.

 

Thanking you

Re: Help Palettes

Maybe you can use the  Internet Explorer tab from the Resource Bar...

Re: Help Palettes

You need to set the variable UGII_DISABLE_HELP_PAGE to 0.

 

Either edit the file ...\UGII\ugii_env.dat and add a line to it:

 

UGII_DISABLE_HELP_PAGE=0

 

or

 

Windows Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings (Upper left) -> Environment Variables

 

and create a user variable called UGII_DISABLE_HELP_PAGE and set the value to 0

 

tested and this works up until and NX8.5 & NX9. It doesn't work in NX10.
