You can't move it. One of the changes that was made was to fix its location at the top. I've heard it was due to a change in workflow to use the ribbon interface.

That's just dumb. Another case of progammers telling the users what's best for them.

Yep. I used to have it on the bottom. It's taken me a month to get used to it. Clearly I was doing it wrong before.

Yes, you cannot adjust it anymore in wf5.0.

Sure would be nice to be able to "tear" this toolbar away so I can place it on a second monitor, should be universal for all toolbars

IMHO,

Sounds like you just need bigger monitors. I just wish the first Pro/E window would open maximized instead of an inch from the right side of the screen.

I like the dashboard at the top, the only complaint is that the drop down menus cover the model tree, so when you are trying to place something in an assembly you cannot click the datums at the top of the model tree with the placement dropdown open.

Having the ribbon makes this small inconvenience worthwhile. Just waiting for the rest of Pro/E to catch up.

I've been told you can move the model tree to the right side of the screen in WF5 but then again you may not like it there.

Hey Paul, there is a config.pro option for maximizing the screen on launch:

Hope this helps!
