Release: Creo Parametric 4.0
Benefits and Description
You can watch a video that demonstrates this capability.
The enhanced user interface customization options are accessible from the Creo Parametric Options dialog box, under Customize. For the ribbon, you can define a customization for the modes listed below:
All Modes
Current Mode
Popular Modes
There is no longer a requirement that the customized mode be active.
In addition, you can customize out-of-the-box groups and propagate changes to other environments. When you select the Propagate Customization check box, changes are propagated to all tabs and groups with the same name, and changes from others tabs and groups of the same name are received. Neither occurs if the Propagate Customization check box is cleared.
A Common tab is added which is visible in the ribbon in all environments. You can add common commands to this tab which will always appear in the ribbon. Also, you can customize shortcut menus such as the right-click menu and the new mini toolbar. You can customize both in the ways described below:
From the graphics area you can customize shortcut menus for a given selection. Simply drag and drop commands into the shortcut menus. You can also enable or disable rows in the mini toolbar or sections of the right–click shortcut menu to tailor the active selection–specific menu.
From File > Options > Customize. Under Customize you can switch between the various selection contexts and their associated shortcut menus.
Additional customization of keyboard shortcuts is also available. More out-of-the-box keyboard shortcuts are added. Click Customize > Keyboard Shortcuts to easily assign new keyboard shortcuts to commands. You can define keyboard shortcuts with a single character or combination of a single character and an accelerator or function key. Filter and select the command to which you want to assign a keyboard shortcut and define the new shortcut. If the new definition uses key combinations that are assigned to other keyboard shortcuts or map keys, a conflict is automatically detected and a conflict resolution dialog box opens.
The enhanced customization helps you to tailor your working environment and speed up your daily repetitive tasks.
