About Enterprise Customization (CUIx) Files

An enterprise CUIx file typically stores user interface customization that is shared
by many users in a company, but is controlled by a CAD manager. Enterprise CUIx files
make maintaining and modifying customization data easier for the individual responsible
of controlling company standards.

Create and use an enterprise CUIx file by performing the following tasks:

  • Create an enterprise CUIx file from an existing or new CUIx file. Make a copy of the main customization file (acad.cuix or acadlt.cuix) or another customization file of your choice that contains all the base user interface
    elements you need. If you want to start with a new customization file, use the Transfer
    tab of the Customize User Interface (CUI) Editor to create an empty customization
    file.
  • Designate the CUIx file as the main CUIx file. Use the Options dialog box and set the customization file you want to use as the
    enterprise customization file as the main customization file so you can make edits
    to all of the different user interface elements. Make sure to note which customization
    file is currently designated as the main customization file, as you will need to restore
    it later.
  • Modify the contents of the enterprise CUIx file. Once the customization file is designated as the main customization file, you can
    change the customization group name and modify the CUIx file contents as needed. Changing
    the customization group name allows you to load more than one CUIx file in the program
    at one time. CUIx files with the same customization group name cannot be loaded into
    the program.
  • Replace the main CUIx file. Use the Options dialog box and replace the previous customization file that was designated
    as the main customization file.
  • Save the enterprise CUIx file to a shared network location. When the new enterprise CUIx file is placed on a shared network location, all users
    that have access to the specified location can access the file.
  • Specify the enterprise CUIx file location. Use the Options dialog box and set the enterprise customization file. Specifying
    the enterprise customization file location can be done on individual workstations
    or as part of a deployment (network deployment is not available in the standard version
    of AutoCAD LT).

    NOTE:Even though the Customize User Interface (CUI) Editor loads the enterprise customization
    file as read-only, this still does not completely protect the file from being modified.
    The enterprise customization file could be loaded as the main customization file and
    then modified. To protect the enterprise customization file, the location where it
    is stored should be marked as read-only and write access should be limited to those
    you want to be able to edit the file.
