'Placement' sub menu won't appear - what have I missed?

Hi all,

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.

Hi Mike,

I feel as if I've come across this issue before, for a different customer, but I am unable to locate it.

  1. Have you tested on another machine?
  2. Is this for all assemblies or just some?
  3. Has Creo been running for a long period of time, without a restart?  If so, close down Creo and launch it.
  4. Test without any configs.

If I can find that other case, I will add additional notes here.

Thanks,

Amit

Hi Amit,

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,

Mike.

Re: 'Placement' sub menu won't appear - what have I missed?

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.

Beautiful.

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!

Why would PTC have the capability to do this?

It's rhetorical.

This work...

"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" .

Thanks.

PTC should make an article about this fix and put it  in the Technical Support Search section

MH,

My users would like to deactivate this Creo 3.0 "feature" entirely. Can this option be set in config.pro?

Hi,

I am sorry I do not know any option how to disable this behavior.
