Customization of user interface in SOLIDWORKS Electrical!

Article by Vipanjot Kaur, CSWP updated July 29, 2020


Are you aware of settings in SOLIDWORKS Electrical that allow you to change quite a few things in the user interface, just like we make modifications in SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD? Do you prefer the mouse wheel to be reversed for zoom direction? Maybe a darker theme? Or a larger cross-hair than the default size?

In addition to what I mentioned above, there are a lot more settings that can be controlled through the Electrical Interface configuration tool.

How to access Electrical Interface configuration tool?

Go to Tools Tab > Interface Configuration > This launches the Interface Configuration dialogue box.

Below is a list of few important items that can be changed in the electrical interface:

  • Cross Hair – Use the drag bar to control the percentage to select a preferred crosshair size for your screen.
  • Reverse Zoom direction – Toggle the checkbox ON or OFF to prefer specific zoom in and out direction.
  • Zoom speed- Default Zoom speed is 100 %, it can be reduced or increased using the drag bar.
  • Change the marker/cursor colour
  • Change the drawing background theme
  • Control the Tabs colour as well their position
  • Change the tabs/ribbons font height
  • Select default dimension units

All the settings that are changed in this user interface dialogue box can be reverted so quickly just by clicking on Reset all interfaces.
