There’s not much that’s better than getting a screaming fast new machine, it’s true. But there is one thing than can sweeten that pot - getting to keep all of your Solid Edge settings when you move to your new system!
Solid Edge makes it easy for you to copy your settings and preferences from one machine to another. Safely tucking your data in an encrypted file, you can save registry settings, customized themes, files from the Preferences folder, and template files. The Solid Edge Settings and Preferences Wizard is available in the Solid Edge program group.
To capture your settings, launch the Wizard.
Select Capture Settings and Preferences, and then click Next.
Specify the settings you want to capture, specify a filename and location for your preference file, and click Finish.
The wizard also allows you to restore a saved configuration or to reset your system to factory defaults. A fourth option is available to reset your system defaults while persisting your language settings – useful when you’re changing the language of your user interface.
More options are available on the Application button > Settings > Options > User Profile tab to save settings automatically on exit or to restore settings automatically when you start up Solid Edge, giving you all of the tools you need to keep your environment as consistent as you want across as many machines as you need.
