I wondered if there was an option buried wihtin SE ST8 to display the full path and filename of the active file across the top of the main SE window (see attached screen grab)
This would be very useful save having to go to file/properties every time to see the full path of the active drawing or model
Thanks in advance
We are already able to display the filename
Concerning displaying the full path, we could proceed with this workaround but it should not be the best one
-Copy the Path
-Create a new Parameter with the name Path -for example-
-Go to Solid Edge Option
-In SEST5 under HELP:
Here you will already find the FILENAME and your new created Parameter "PATH"
I suppose perhaps you could add that to your templates for future parts but every existing file would need to have that property added and the option set.
Long ago I have downloaded this macro from the old bbsforum of Siemens PLM.
The only thing I can say about it. Is that it does work in ST6.
Good macro Dirk. I had started working on a similar one and then abandoned it after checking the one in your post. It is working in ST 8 MP 5 as well.
A related macro to open the folder of the current Solid Edge file in Windows Explorer and have it highlighted is here. Search the page for "Explore This".
Yeah, the macro is nice and all, but you have to keep hitting it. Better than the current situation for sure. But how 'bout a simple embedded setting in SE?
Of course that will take an ER and lots of patience.
Edit: There is one thing that deserves big kudos for this macro IMO. We're Insight managed and file properties will show you the local cache location which adds about 70 characters to the front of the path of interest depending on where it's from. This macro shows the server sql location only. Very nice.
