I am working on Creo 3 with various assemblies and sub-assemblies. Until recently it was functioning normally, but now when placing an object/assembly, the sub menu under the 'Placement' tab won't appear. The adjacent Move/Options/Flexibility/Properties tabs work fine, its just the Placement.
Hopefully one of you guys can help with the problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I feel as if I've come across this issue before, for a different customer, but I am unable to locate it.
If I can find that other case, I will add additional notes here.
I haven't tested on another machine, as well. I don't have one to test. It's the same for all assemblies, and also whether Creo has been running for hours or just started. I am running it without any configs loaded up.
Thanks for your help,
It looks like you are using mechanism connections which are handled differently than placement.
I see the message "Connection Definition Complete," which is part of mechanism, not assembly placement, which is why only Move is available in order to let you drag the mechanism.
I don't know how you got there, but that seems to be where you are and it is acting as I would expect it to act.
The last post in that thread;
"In such cases other option can be used to rest the position of panels. Option "Rest Panels Position" is available under File > Options > Window Settings "Rest Panels Position" "
Got things sorted straight away.
Thanks for the help everyone. I can resume as normal!
"In such cases other option can be used to rest the position of panels. Option "Rest Panels Position" is available under File > Options > Window Settings "Rest Panels Position" .
PTC should make an article about this fix and put it in the Technical Support Search section
