Hmm, I didn't notice anything you mentioned. Maybe my particular interface is customized by my administrators.
Are there any alternative methods?
Can you attach or embed a screenshot/capture of your interface? It will be easier to direct you once we know what you're seeing. There are several interfaces for Teamcenter: 2tier Rich Application Client, 4tier Rich Application Client, Web (Thin) Client and Active Workspace are the main ones.
