What are the CUI files
Files with the CUI extension are Customize User Interface files for BricsCAD. These XML format files replace the previously used menu definition files (*.mnu *.mns). CUI files can be edited with the build-in interactive editor, launched by the CUSTOMIZE command. You can migrate CUI files between BricsCAD versions and combine them between different computers.
The Load partial CUI file ... procedure accepts IntelliCAD menu files (*.mnu *.mns) and converts them to CUI files.
