I have ST6 and can't get the reference planes to show up unless I curser over them. How do I make them show up in order to draw a part. I know how to hide them once they are present.
First of all, welcome to the forum !
Expand the 'Base Reference Planes' node in the PathFinder.
Now you can check each ref plane ON or OFF as required.
you aught to be able to RMB on any plane and from the quick menu select show.
OR check the check box in front of the plane name,
double clicking ont he plane collector check box will show all / hide all
hope this works for you.
Are you expanding the Base Reference Planes collector to show the Top, Right, and Front planes in the PathFinder? See attached image.
OK, this appears to be a graphics issue.
From the Solid Edge Application button, open Solid Edge Options:
From the left side, take the View tab and try to match the Application Display settings to those shown in image below:
Click OK in the dialog and restart Solid Edge if the ref planes still don't appear.
Hope this helps.
