Property Manager Preview - Turn This Off?

Pioneer

Hi,

 

This is a minor petty issue that probably doesn't warrant it's own thread but I can't find a solution online anywhere.

 

When I open Property Manager in an assembly, I get a File Preview appear, in the same annoying place every time nomatter where I move it or how many times I click "X".

 

Is there any way to turn this off entirely or get the software to remember I want it off?

 

I don't see any options on the Property Manager anywhere.

 

See attached for what I mean. "OK" "Cancel" and "Help" are obstructed.

 

Thanks

Hi @User_Error

 

 

 

Yes indeed this is one of those "big issues" which can frustrate one!

 

As often as You open the Property Manager You will get this preview window.

Which itself is not bad, but always at the worst position and place on screen.

And there is no learning effect of where it should stay!

 

I think this also is a point for the "Call for Pet Peeves 2.0"

Is there a thread for Call for Pet Peeves 2.0? Sounds like something that would be useful now ST10 has been out a while with a few service packs.

 

I hope the SE developers check these threads, it's such a small simple thing to fix that would make the User Interface much less annoying. Just need a simple "Options" button like in Design Manager where you can turn tool tips off (per attached).

Hi @User_Error

 

 

 

 

 

Yes there is  a thread "Call for Pet Peeves" but No this is not the place to bring ideas to the developement.

This only can be achieved opening an ER call at GTAC or via Your Siemens partner!

 

Thats the only and good way to enhance the software!

Hi,

 

There is indeed a way to turn the preview off;

 

Look at the top left hand corner, you will see an icon marked preview.

Select this to either turn on or off.

DM will remember the setting.

Hi @MattHunt

 

 

 

Yes will work for Design Manager, but we talked about Property Manager!

And unfortunateley there is no option for turning on/off the preview in PM.
