  • Object Properties Gone

    This has happened before, I'll load up a project I'd been working on and the Object Properties window is gone. I can't get it back by selecting the menu item in the View menu. This is annoying because the only way to view an object's position, other than that window, is the "Move/Rotate" dialog. How do I get my Object Properties window back?

    Hello Matt,


    I think the object property window is still there but no longer visible on your screen.


    You should get it back with the shortcut 'Crtl + O'. If this doesn't work you need to modify your screen resolution to get it back in the visible area.


    We are sorry for the inconvenience and you are definitely right, this is very annoying.


    Our new version FPD4 won't have this issue. Release is in two weeks on April 12.

    Thanks Diane,


    I have indeed relocated my PC temporarily to a workstation with a smaller monitor than my office one, so the property window is probably off-screen. Looking forward to version 4. (Just curious, will it include an 'enclosure wizard'?)

    Hi Matt,


    Sorry, no enclosure wizard this time. Version 4.0 focuses on dxf imports of inner and outer contours.


    Coming next will be the ability to choose material thicknesses up to 10mm and powder coating finish.
