Drafting tools invisible

I'm trying to make a drawing of a part but my drafting menus are invisible. All tabs are visible but no drafting tools. I've tried with different parts and restarted NX but it's still the same.

 

Any idea why?

Hi @MatticeBoets,

Image shows gateway application in the title bar.

Activate drafting from application tab or use shortcur CTRL+ALT+D.

I've been thrown off by that, too.  For several times, the drawing would be in Drafting application and then, all of a sudden, it's in the Gateway application when I switch back to it.  Any idea what triggers this and makes this occur?

IIRC, when this has happened to me in the past, it's usually after I've OK'd an error message, following which I get kicked out of Drafting to Gateway.

Hi @GaneshKadole

 

There is no drafting button on the application tab. Shortcut doesn't do anything either. The button used to be there and the shortcut is usually how I enter the drafting application but it isn't working.

Hi @Cesare

 

There is no home tab available in the drafting application when I right click. 

 

Also, when I create a new drawing it doesn't direct me to the drafting application but rather to the standard modeling view.

Do you have a license bundle selected that includes Drafting?

Yes I do. I have made many drawings in the past. I've used the drafting application last week.

What happens if you try to create a brand new model part and try to enter the Drafting application?
