For Solid edge up to 20:

You can add macro to toolbar thro Tools/costumize...

Categories: macros

Choose folder with your macro by "browse..." buton.

For icons you can use your *.BMP picture.

 

My tips is add yor macros/icons to existing toolbars because one toolbar is always in the same position.

If you create new then two toolbars can be aligned horizontaly or verticaly and Solid Edge often change it and nobody know why

Well thanks JM, but I am using SE ST2 and I don't know how can I add an icon to a toolbar in this version.

 

Do you know how can I do to do this in the version SE ST2.

 

But thanks for your answer anyway.

Sorry, I test ST2 only once and, if I remember, there is possibility to create one toolbar (Maybe in SE window header, but I am not sure how).

Maybe somebody with ST2 help you.

 

(Exist another way - It isn't neccesary run SE macros from SE. E.g. You can add icons to windows Quick lunch, use some dockbar....)
