People use the Menu function frequently in ZWCAD, but different people have different requirements. They are not content with existing menu files and functions. In order to make their work easier and faster, they would like to customize menus.
1.Use “MEUNLOAD ” command
In ZWCAD, you can use the MENULOAD command to load and unload menus. After executing this command you can find the “Load/unload Customizations” dialogue box pops up as follows. To display this dialogue box you can also choose Tools→Customize→Menus.
Introduction the Function of Loading and Unloading Menus
If you want to load menus, there are two methods to do that. First, you can input the menus’ name and path in the “File Name” text box. Second, if you forget the menu’s name, please press “Browse” button to choose the file you need. After that, click Load you will find the menu which you need is displayed in “Loaded Customization”. After closing this dialogue box you will find the menu file which you load has shown in the menu bar. For instance, we can know from the following pictures, the new menu “Mechanical lib” has been loaded and displayed in menu bar.
It’s not difficult to unload menus, please select the menus which you want to unload in the “Loaded Customization” box, and then press “Unload” button. After checking on the menu bar, you will find the menu file which you load has been deleted.
Please unclick “All Replaces”, if you just want to add some new menus to the menu bar.
