Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

Topaz II

Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

I have three drawings and one model open. I used the box in the top bar to go from one to the other. I had initially tried Alt-tabbing between then, but then they are not activiated. Now I am back on the one, and I try to get to the model, but it still shows one of the drawings with the don't symbol (red circle with a red line through it) when I click on the model. If I click on any of the drawings, then are activated, but when I click on the model, it stay on a drawing and is not activated.

Thanks,

Dale

Short term work around. I am dragging the window with the drawing that it is stuck on out of the way enough and then I can work on the model of the screen underneath and when I am done, I move the window back into place. Any clues as to what is happening?

Re: Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

You can ALT + TAB to go to the desired part/drawing and then CTRL + A to activate it.

Or you can use the WINDOWS command to go and activate the desired Part/Drawing.

Sounds like a graphics driver issue. I've also had Creo 2.0 F001 do some funny graphics things.

Re: Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

The part was activated, but it didn't bring it to the front when I used the drop down menu in your picture. Is was still under / below the drawing window that was no longer activated.

Does graphic requirements change from WF5 / Creo to Creo 2.0?

Re: Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

You can try to update your graphic card drivers or try to run Creo without any configurations (in case you are loading you own Config.pro at the start)

Re: Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

No, any qualified card that worked before should still work. Non-qualified cards that worked well with WF5 should still work fine.

Drivers on the other hand are hit and miss. I upgraded to the latest NVidia driver and my Java video apps had problems. Dell support had me back down several revisions to get back to where the system was when I received it. It is a driver very close to what PTC is recommending.

I do have issues with this graphics card and driver even though it is "approved" by PTC. When I use a symbol with a filled polygon, it corrupts the screen by drawing a filed triangle across 1/2 the graphics window when making drawings.

Not switching application windows is probably a system issue. When I 1st got my laptop (Dell Precision) there was a new button in the top of the windows that added a "window priority" option (in the upper right where the X-out button is). Once I turned that feature off, the appropriate window popped up when I expected it. Maybe you can see if that is what is happening. I believe this was an NVidia feature. I'm sorry I cannot tell you more at the moment. But now that I am thinking about this, that is likely ther root cause of your issue.

Re: Creo 2.0 Stuck in a drawing

Nothing was changed from WF5 / Creo to Creo 2.0. I will check and see if it drivers, but I have not upgraded them (I started at this facility in February).
