Ricky, I have a file that occasionally mixes the Model and Draft appearance showing up as rectangular image within the Model environment. I’ve attached a screen capture to illustrate my point. I’ve been occasionally seeing this with this file and only this file for a few months. I had hopes that ST5 would fix it – not so.
I’ve seen this happen to me before with earlier versions of SE. I think the file is in need of a fix but take a look and let me know your thoughts.
I have been away for a while. Yes, I got the file. I can't see anything unusual. One thing I see in the screencast in the original post is that I don't see the sheet tab tray. I see that you still use customization to the Nth degree. How are you switching back and forth between 2D Mosel and working sheets?
Ricky, actually there are 9 DRAFT sheets in the file plus the MODEL. I think that the loss of the sheet tab tray is part of the problem. It's as if the file gets confused as which environment it's suppose to be in. Unfortunately, I haven t found the combination of events that causes this problem. If and when I do, I ll post it.
Re my nth degree of customization, I have reduced it immesenly since I tried and learned the advantage of the RADIAL menu. But I do have a gaming mouse and I use all of the keys/buttons with keyboard shortcuts. As I ve suggested before when we had visited this issue, if there is a limit as to the customization allowed, than the software should either provide a warning or a hard STOP .
Ricky, I have been using Solid Edge 2D for several years and love it to pieces. I have a copy at my work, and here at home in my desktop. I bought a new Windows 8 All In One machine a few days ago and attempted to download ST5. My error message reads as follows when I try to launch it: SOLID EDGE LICENSE CHECK The feature solidedge2ddrafting failed to check out for the following reason: System clock has been set back. Feature: solidedge2ddrafting, License path - ,etc. I had this problem with my computer at work and you were able to fix it, I hope you can do the same with this one.
