I'm not sure exactly what you're after but here's how to get back disappeared edgebar items using the view tab. As for it staying visible with your theme if you exit SE the appearance of the edgebar is saved with your theme. At least that's the way it seems to me.
Speaking of Select tools, we've upgraded to ST10. The thing that I am used to seeing is when you do a query the items glow when you place that name or part number into the query field. Now it does not. See attached for an explanation.
In the vid you see a list of parts with name and numbers, let's use 200-0065 ergo.
When I select using the shift+right click, all the items glow.
When I goto the select tools and preform a search of the same number, nogo, no glow.
Thank you for your input.
What is the query field set to search on? Right click on the query field and it will show a list of many properties to choose from.
Weird that there was no help in the "help section"
Not really that weird. Help is generally pretty poor IMO.
