Customizing Post Builder siemens NX

Post Builder allows you to customize the appearance of the dialogs. Work with the following two files to make your customization changes.

ui_pb_resource.tcl

You can modify this file to change the default font sets, labels, messages and text strings that appear throughout Post Builder. Only the system administrator should change this file. This file resides in the POSTBUILD/app/ui directory.

ui_pb_user_resource.tcl

You can modify this file to overwrite the ui_pb_resource.tcl file. This file also resides in the POSTBUILD/app/ui directory. You should copy this file to your home directory in order to personally customize the appearance and behavior of Post Builder.

On Unix this directory is /users/log_name.

On Windows this directory is found by typing echo %homedrive%%homepath% from a DOS command prompt.

The following example allows you to change the font appearance on your display, either increase or decrease the size of the numbers in the file. Only change the value of the numbers or the name of the browser.

You can change other features as well.
