Good Afternoon From this morning I can open all my drawings but I can't edit them. I re-installed Solid Edge 10 2D with service pack 3, still the same. Can anyone help please? Thanks Hendrik Smit

Hello @HendrikS

What kind of edits are you trying to make ?

Can you give more details on what are you not able to do.

Hi Tushar

 

Any geometry line, circle,hatch etc.

I can't change the diameter of a circle, hatch or layer.

I can create new geometry and edit it, but anyrhing I did the previous day is a no go.

Hi @HendrikS

 

 

 

 

can You select those items and not change them or is also selecting not possible?

Hi Wolfgang

Found the problem, in the select options, Active layer only was turned on.
I think I must kick myself, did not know the setting is active even if you open another drawing.

Thanks

Hi @HendrikS

 

 

 

this is exactly what I assumed to be the reason.

 

I have seen this that many times, that - of what reason ever - this option was changed to Active Layer only.

I can imagine that is also has happened without interactive input by the user.

Maybe there is a hidden shortcut, a mouse clicking sentence or what ever.

 

As I sayed, this has been seen for a long time for different versions of SE and with many, many different users.

 

I believe that it was not Your fault.
