I have found that if I use 'alt+tab' to switch from NX to another program and back again a few times, the mouse scroll to zoom stops working. I also find that the buttons I have set up on my space mouse no longer work, and there is also some button or key that I press (haven't worked out exactly what it is yet) that causes NX to switch to full screen view. The only way I've found to fix the issue so far is to close and reopen NX.
This was something I first noticed on NX8.5, I've recently started using NX11 and am having the same issue. Has anyone noticed the same thing and is there a solution?
No, i have never seen this.
one of the questions should be as designed, Alt+ Enter is the shortcut for full screen view. Repeat to reverse that.
Regarding the mouse scroll and the spaceball,
Do you run a certified workstation, certified graphics card ?
certified graphics driver ?
Are you running a "special mouse" with an accompanying mouse driver ?
I have seen a couple of situations where a "special" mouse driver gave odd reactions to NX.
I myself tried a gaming mouse with several buttons a couple of years ago, the way to activate these buttons was through the accompanying mouse driver. Then NX started to halt for a couple of seconds, then everything worked again like nothing had happened. no traces. This issue disappeared when i uninstalled that Mouse driver.
Sorry, forgive my ignorance - when you say certified workstation, certified graphics card & driver, what do you mean?
I am using a 3dconnexion 3d mouse with accompanying driver. Apart from this occasional issue I haven't noticed any other problems.
Certified workstation means all the hardware, drivers and OS (and versions where applicable) are tested, certified & most importantly supported by Siemens to run their software.
For example, if you were to have an unsupported graphics card and it was found out to somehow be causing your zoom issue then that would be your problem to fix, not Siemens.
And if you are wondering how to find out what is certified...
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP16/TC11.2
I'd rather be e-steamed than e-diseaseled
The same issue was happening to me. Sometimes after alt + tab into NX the mouse zoom and keyboard shortcuts are unresponsive. I found that if I alt + tab out and back into NX again the issue is resolved without restarting NX.
