Saved Dialog Box Modifications

If you modify the Summary Information or Cut-List Properties dialog boxes by resizing them or changing column widths, the software saves your changes with the active document.

You can resize these dialog boxes and column widths to make information visible that would otherwise be truncated. As you continue to work with a document, having these changes saved means you do not need to repeat the modifications if you reopen the dialog boxes.

Changes you make are specific to the active document and do not affect other documents.

You can resize the width of both dialog boxes. In addition, you can resize the following column widths:

Summary Information dialog box
Active document Assembly



Tabs you can resize Custom

Configuration Specific

Column widths changes you make to the Custom tab are reflected on the Configuration Specific tab and vice versa.

Cut-List Properties dialog box
Active document Weldment
Tabs you can resize Cut List Summary

Properties Summary

Cut List Table

Column widths changes you make to the Cut List Summary tab are reflected on the Properties Summary tab and vice versa.

The software saves only the last changes you make in the dialog box. For example, if you change column widths on the Cut List Summary tab and then change them on the Properties Summary tab, the modified column widths from the Properties Summary tab are saved.

The modifications are saved if you close the dialog box by clicking OK. They are not saved if you close the dialog box by clicking Cancel.
