  • Exporting custom toolbar

    We have 5 CMM's here and I am making a custom toolbar for me on one of them. Is there a way to save the toolbar and load it on the rest of the computers so I don't have to create it on every computer? All computers are on DMIS 2019.

    You can try copying C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Hexagon\PC-DMIS\2019 R1\Toolbar.dat from the master computer to the others. Remember that if you have custom buttons referring to external objects (images, files, executables, etc.) all computers must have those objects, too, and in the same place on every computer.

      No custom buttons here.

      So the toolbar.dat file will have my custom tool bar in it as well as the factory ones?

      When I try it, I'll save the original file as something else so I can revert back if it doesn't work. Or can I tell DMIS to look for a different file name for the toolbar like "toolbar1.dat"?

      Make sure to have a backup first! No way to point to some other file.

    Kind of on the same subject... Can I edit the toolbar in the report window and if so, how?

      I don't think so - it doesn't appear in the list of toolbars when you do Customize...

        Yeah, I didn't see it either. We only use 5 of the buttons so it would be nice to declutter it a bit. I like having all the buttons I need and none that I don't.

        I think I found out how to edit the report window toolbar. My CMM is running currently and has to be inactive to do it. I'll report back when I get a chance to try it.

      From the 2019 Core manual for customizing the report window toolbar and how to restore it:

      Customizing and Restoring the Toolbar

      You can add your own templates or custom reports to the toolbar by using the Add
      Template to Toolbar icon discussed above. When you add a report to the toolbar, a
      new icon for that report or template appears on the right side of the toolbar. Each new
      icon you add represents a stored custom report or custom report template.
      • To remove any report icons from the toolbar, hold down Shift and then
      drag the icon off of the toolbar. This only removes the template or report
      from the toolbar; it does not delete the item from the system.

      • To restore the toolbar to its original toolbar icons, you can do the following:
      1. Close PC-DMIS.
      2. Navigate to the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Hexagon\PCDMIS\<
      version>, where <username> is your Windows user name
      and <version> is the version of PC-DMIS you are using.
      3. Delete reportingtoolbar.dat.
      4. Restart PC-DMIS.

      The above works.

        Well, we do have various success rates with the migration of toolbars...

          Well, the OP isn't about *migration*, but *duplication* over several equal systems. I would never suggest migrating toolbars from one version to the next.

          Ok, fair enough.
