So where do I find the Themes folder. I want to bring my custom theme into my Surface Pro 3, bust have wasted too much time looking for all the pertinent files, folder.
Anyone know where I can find the files like Themes, Materials, Holes, etc. And why doesn't Solid Edge have a SIMPLE Import/Export command for this type of stuff?
Solved! Go to Solution.
By default, Themes are found here: C:\Users\grayson\AppData\Roaming\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 107\Customization (minus the "grayson", of course)
Materias, Holes, and other preferences are here: C:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST7\Preferences
Hope this helps.
Funny I looked in AppData\Siemens PLM and saw nothing and just moved on. I keep forgetting that "Unigraphics" is still being used. Anyway when can we get a Import/Export program added to the Theme Menu?
Good question.... but you might want to be more specific on what you want it to do. The Themes automatically carry over when you install new versions so when updating software on the same machine, it shouldn't be an issue. Going from machine to machine is just a matter of knowing where they are located and copy/paste. Not saying it can't be more automated or easier to find; just curious what your speecific thoughts are.
I've been using my Surface Pro 3 on the road and at home for the past month or so, and would love to "Synch" the GUI and all the templates, etc. from my workstation.
This is my need: I've designed a new machine on my workstation and I want to go out to the customer or Machine Shop with my Surface Pro. But I want to have all the "new" or added Material(s), Face Styles, logo/graphics, Draft Templates, etc. to be imported from my workstation so that I don't stumble looking for customized menus, or having blank colors that are suppose to be representing the customers project.
So an Export command that would collect this stuff into a file that could be imported into another machine would be a great time saver.
By the way I'm having a blast using the SP3 for Solid Edge... I wish I had a 30" touchscreen on my workstation!
Good thoughts. If you haven't already, I would document what you just said into an ER and encourage everybody to hop on board.
I have also played with Solid Edge on the Surface Pro 3 (we brought them to the IMTS show in Chicago a few weeks ago) and yes, the touchscreen functions are pretty sweet.
as long as the username is the same You can use the (from ST9 onwards) provided function of the "Setup and Preferences Wizzard" to save and restore Your settings.
This includes the themes as well as the used templates
You also can do this on a regular base everytime You start and stop SE 8see options)
but You also can simply copy the Customization folder under %appdata%/Unigraphics Solution/Solid Edge/version xxx/
This is the place where all Your theme settings are stored
