Icon Color Option

davehocum 3 years ago in User Interface updated by Britt Kinney 8 months ago 21

SoildWorks added a Icon color option. The option is to be able to change the Icons color from Default to Classic. Maybe they could do this with PC-DMIS to have a Icon color option.

Import/Export Window Layout

tomeq 1 year ago in User Interface updated by SABarber 1 year ago 14

It would be nice to have an import / export option for the Window Layout between cmms and Pc-Dmis versions.
Now, after upgrade, I have to create my Window Layout from begining for all machines.

Browse Button in the “New Measurement Routine” Dialog

Thomas Schopp 2 years ago in User Interface updated by neil.kay 3 months ago 3

It would be nice to have a browse Button in the “New Measurement Routine” Dialog to create a new Routine in a Subfolder from the “Default Measurement Routine Directory”.

A lot of customers have a Folder Structure depend on their Customers, for Example:

Measurement Routines

  • Volkswagen
  • Audi
  • BMW

Etc. Actual it’s not possible to create a new Routine in the right Folder directly. Each new Routine exists as file corpse in the “Default Measurement Routine Directory” after Save as in a Subfolder.

I've seen this requested many times and think this would be a great feature. Being able to emphasize certain instructions by changing font color or size in the operator comments.

Default feature color

V.Maglov 1 year ago in User Interface 0

I'd like to suggest a feature - to add an option to set the default colors for different types of features - i.e. by default every time i create a constructed feature its color on the cad model to be yellow and every time i create an auto feature its color to be red etc.
I am asking for this feature because atm whenever i start a new program or open an existing one by default all features are black and even if i set it manually the way i want it every feature i add to the program after i have set my colors is shown in black no matter where in the program i add the feature.
Also id like to suggest a global option for adjusting the features' colors for all programs because i would really like to avoid setting the colors for 1300+ programs manually one by one.
IMPO this would be extremely convenient if such an option is added to PC DMIS.

QuickMeasure toolbar, make new sub icon menu

Murat AKBULUT 2 years ago in User Interface updated by Trevor McLaughlin 2 years ago 2

These openable icons are very useful. The new ones have been added, which is good. But I want to be able to create myself.
  In this way;
  - I get rid of the clutter.
  - I gained from the area.
  - I can make my own arrangements.

Window Menu shortcuts

jweaver 9 months ago in User Interface 0

I, like others, use shortcut keys to save time while using PC-DMIS and other programs.  When I have multiple programs open in PC-DMIS I would greatly prefer to be able to edit them side by side, but that is not possible currently.  When I open the Window menu with Alt+W to switch from one program to the next, the current open program has a shortcut key of 1 and the second has a shortcut of 2.  This is fine, except the report window and graphic display window also have shortcuts of 1 and 2 (see attached image, filenames have been cut out).  My suggestion is simple.  Change the Graphic Display Window shortcut to G, the Report window to R, etc.

Modular Window Setup - PC-DMIS Layout

Anthony Fotion 3 years ago in User Interface updated by e.gunduz 2 years ago 3

Hey everyone,


I didn't find anything listed about this so I figured I would put it up. I use 2-3 monitors at a time when using PC-DMIS. I would like the ability to be able to place different parts of PC-DMIS on different monitors when programming and working.


Examples would be:

-Live view on separate monitor

-Report Window on separate monitor

-Edit Window on separate monitor

-CAD View on separate monitor

-Measurement tools in your own locations


-The ability to have that layout,  the size and locations of windows saved for when PC-DMIS is opened next.


Essentially a user could make their PC-DMIS interface setup how they want it when using it whether they use 1,2 or 3 monitors, they could utilize all of them if given the chance.


This sounds like it would be a hard task to change this, but I know it would make a lot of users happy. I think it would be an opportunity to keep some things loaded separately though when loading PC-DMIS and fix certain crashes when too many things are open that are not in use. This would allow users to have only the tools needed for their job open while efficiently switching from task to task and checking their work at the same time without having to find an open window somewhere while utilizing more desktop space for users who like to see more at once.

Error messages should begin with a distinct identifying alpha-numeric code to provide a simpler means of referencing them. Otherwise, some errors messages have similar text and can be confused.
