Export SE settings

Hi,

 

Is it possible to save program settings in ST7?

We're upgrading to ST8 and would like to know if it's possible to export/import settings.

 

 

 

Regards,

 

Kenneth

Kenneth,

You should have some default "Themes" as well as any customized themes located here:

C:\Users\grayson\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107\Customization

 

You can copy/paste these wherever you want.  These themes also carry across from version to version.

Thanks, going to look into that Smiley Happy

 

Update:

 

That did not work.

 

I copied everything in:

C:\Users\kenneth\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107\Customization

 

To:

C:\Users\kenneth\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 108\Customization

 

Program settings are still reset to default.

Settings are stored in 3 places that I know of:

C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107

C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST7\Preferences

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107

 

What needs copied from each area, I'm not sure...


Thanks,
Ken

Ribbon themes:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 10x\Customization

Default settings: (under C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST8...)

Custom hole settings, view scales, etc. are saved in ...\preferences\custom.xml
Custom BOM styles are saved in ...template\reports\draftlist.txt
Custom callouts are in ...\template\reports\draftcallout.txt
Custom weld symbols are in ...\template\reports\draftweld.txt
Templates are in ...\template
Materials are in ...\preferences\material.mtl. Edit (I'm not sure about this one. It may just be our custom one)

Global settings for SE to find most of these things via the file locations in SE options reside in \preferences\options.xml.

Do you know where links are saved (the ones in Solid Edge Options -> File Locations)?

 

Examples:

 

Link to user templates

Link to hole file

Link to gauge file

 

etc.

\preferences\options.xml

 

You can use seadmin.exe to edit it.
