Options drop-down menu within some features (like Surface: copy) not popping up

Hello, 

 

As the image attached shows, the "Options" drop down menu is nowhere to be found. I must have moved it and never re-anchored it and now it won't propagate anywhere on my screens. 

Any suggestions besides restarting my laptop?

Thanks for the help. 

 

Best,

Eric

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

along with the solution to "reset" the GUI panel placements.


To clarify this answer, the solution in that thread is a link to another thread and the solution there isn't really what you want.  It's at the bottom of the second thread, here:

Interesting... I didn't know we could do that (Creo 3 onward).

How annoying Smiley Tongue

Even more annoying is that it remains after you shut down and re-open.

 

Most likely the windows is behind the Creo window.

That makes it even harder to grab.

Try the Alt-Tab trick to see if you can grab the menu.

Alt-Tab will highlight -all- open windows, including Creo menus.

If it is outside your screen, you may need a second monitor with higher resolution to find it.

Or there may be other Windows tricks that I know nothing about.
