Cursor input box not showing up in mac NX 11.0.1

Hi! The input box that has to appear to put in width, length, radius, xc, yc etc. isn't showing up. I couldn't find any settings regarding this. What to do? I'm running NX 11.0.1 on macOS Sierra.

 

And also, is it normal that command boxes for basically anything show up very slow on Macbook Pro? My other software respond pretty fast compare to this. For example I click on a sketch line button and it takes a few seconds to load.

 

Thanks!

See if you can restore the toolbar by selecting "Reset Window Position" on "Preferences > User Interface > Layout". Are the command boxes slow to open every time, or just the first time they are loaded in session?

Nope, didn't show up after resetting, or changing roles and resetting. But I noticed I can still type the dimentions and hit enter to get the effect without the box present, so it's not a problem any more.

 

Regarding the comands, looking at it closely now they load fine, maybe I did something whyle trying to fix the input box problem.

Are you referring to the Tracking Bar that is used with the Basic Curves command? I just checked NX11 on Linux and it's permanently docked at the bottom left of the graphics display, it's likely the same with MacOS.

I'm refering to the little box that appears to input dimentions.

It could be the user.mtx, dialog memory or (Mac equivalent of registry) is corrupt.

Unfortunately I don't know where those files are, what they are called, or how to delete them on a Mac.

Hi @JoeBad,

 

I've just reproduced the issue.  I am able to bring up the XC/YC dialog if I create a sacrificial circle prior to the one I actually want to create:

Can you open an IR with GTAC so that they can report this issue to development?
