Match Properties MPropACAD.png in AutoCAD and Format Painter MatchProperties.png in MS Office are widely used time-saving features in the respective programs.
Though Solid Edge has its own distinct way of handling object properties, AutoCAD users will find 'Match Properties for Solid Edge' - a free utility functions in a similar fashion in the Draft environment for objects like Lines, Circles, Arcs, Ellipses, Curves and Points.

The program can be downloaded from here.

Tushar,

 

Is it possible to share your toolbar with icons also ?

I have seen in another thread you have made a beautifull toolbar for all your macro's

 

I don't know if I already have said this but you are a real gift to this community.

Thanks for your words of appreciation Dirk; these help me keep going.

 

For sharing the toolbar, I believe I must share the folder:

%APPDATA%\Unigraphics\Solid Edge\Version nnn\Customization\Theme Name

for which I will check with the admin if I can give out files from the company.

 

Though all macros published so far via the download links contain the images too.

Below are the images again, with transparent backgrounds and can be copied directly by right clicking:

Match Properties MatchProperties.png

PacEdge PacEdge.png

Rectangle Centerlines RectangleCenterlines.png

Screen Capture SESCapture.png

Text Search SETextSearch.png

Zoom to Selection ZoomToSelection.png

 

Alternatively, download the attached zip file.

 

Note: When these images are renamed to match with the exe name and placed in the same folder as the macro exe, these automatically show up on the ribbon buttton. Sizing will also be automatic.

Hi tushar,

 

Sorry for this I was not aware it's from your company.

So the zip will be enough for sure. I will make a new menu group called "Tushar Tools"

And thank you for sharing your macros here. I like them !

Its not my company, its some one else's and with a NDA in place the admin sniffs even if a harmless file with custom settings moving out of the company network. Sorry about the toolbar.

 

Robot LOL

Please name it 'Draft Tools' or 'My SE Tools' or appropriately and not after me Smiley Happy

I will be flattered un-necessarily.

 

and thanks for the appreciation, though the response for free custom macros on this forum has been quite lukewarm (a descent word for poor).
