BLOCK EDIT - IMPROPER CLOSURE


I inadvertently closed the block edit screen using the upper right x instead of the
CLOSE BLOCK button. Now when I open a any block, I can't close them the proper
way and need to x out. Is the onlyfix resetting defaults via Registry Edit?
Thanks

Re: BLOCK EDIT - IMPROPER CLOSURE: ANYBODY???


This is to remind somebody that I need an answer. And anticipating what the answer
will be, I have another question as well as a clarification.
Clarification first: This thread is somewhat a continuation of the thread titled:
V100 GLOBALLY AVAILABLE BLOCKS etc. that started in mid Sept 08 and ran thru about
early Nov 08 between myself, Ricky and others. I learned that there is a bug that
will be fixed in the next version concerning closing out of the Block Edit screen
without using the Close Block command. Funny stuff happens as a consequence.
Additional Question based on the assumption that the answer to my initial question
is that I have to reset SE back to default status using Registry Editing that I
also learned about in the above. Currently, as a consequence of my failure to close
properly, I've started to edit my blocks by unblocking, editing, and reblocking
using the same block name as before. Than I replace.
Fixing this bug via Registry Editor means I have recustomize which is time consumming.
What happens if I don't fix it and just wait for the SE update fix. Will my block
files than work ok?
Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
Sorry for not answering sooner. Ricky is out again this week. I expect him to
return next week. I will look into this a little this afternoon.
Sorry for the delay.

Re: BLOCK EDIT - IMPROPER CLOSURE


Ron,
When I tried this myself, I did not experience any problems like what you mention.
Of course, I tried this in the full Solid Edge product. My first guess on this
is that the button is still there, it is just on a different tab. When you get
into the Edit Block mode, make sure you activate the Home tab on the command bar
across the top of the window. The Close button for thre block is only available
on this tab. If you activate another tab, the next time you open a block, it takes
you back into that same tab on the command bar.
If this is not it and what are speaking of is indeed a bug to be fixed in the next
version, then I know of no other way to get around the problem other than to delete
your user preferences out of the registry editor as you have been doing. It may
be worth your while to try to figure out a little further down into the registry
editor where your problem actually lies and then you can delete just that portion.
Being as I am not familiar with this problem at all, it may be better to wait until
Ricky gets back to give a better response. Perhaps he can shed more light on the
subject.
Andy.

Re: BLOCK EDIT - IMPROPER CLOSURE


Ricky, I assume that you're back by now. If not, than this is for Andy. It's taken
me a few days since Andy's last posting because I've stopped getting SE posting
emails again that I've reported on other occasions. Hopefully they will start again
for whatever reason.
Re the problem of this thread: To be more specific, now whenever I open a block
file and go to the Edit screen, closing the Edit screen by pressing the Close Block
command button does nothing. To get back to the Model screen, I have to x out.
This all started when I inadvertently x'd out because I forgot what screen I was
in and that it was a Block file.
I also posted an additional but related followup question on the #2527 posting of
7/14.
Thanks,
Ron

Re: BLOCK EDIT - IMPROPER CLOSURE

Ron,
The block edit closure issue should be a file specific problem, not an
overall UI problem. You should not have to reset the UI. However, if you
create the problem in a template file, all files created with that template
will have the problem.
