Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

Hello, I'm fairly new to all of this so maybe I'm asking a simple question, but I did search for the answer before posting. Anyways...

I have a problem with the window docking in NX 2. It's as if the part window isn't attached to the main UG window (where the toolbars are)

I haven't been able to find an option to sit the part window inside the UG window. I can move it there but if there's no active command (meaning, I'm not in the process of creating a block, line, whatever) then the part window disappears.

Sometimes, even with a running command, like clicking on create a datum plane, my part window disappears behind the UG window so i am not able to select anything unless I set the two windows side by side...and keep switching back and forth between them.

It's a major inconvenience, but I can work around it...but why should I? There's a solution somewhere, I'm just not familiar enough with the program yet to find it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

RE: Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

Be more specific, which platform are you running it on, PC or UNIX, could be OS related

RE: Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

But it sounds like you are running UNIX and have active window on top set

RE: Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

it's on UNIX

where would i uncheck this 'active window on top' option?

preferences > visualization ?

i'll go hunt around some more, thx

RE: Part Window Disappearing (NX 2)

it turns out that it was a setting in the OS, and not unigraphics,

wasn't too hard to find after i opened my tunnel vision to include more than UG

i was bent on finding the answer in UG, it was never going to happen.

thank you for your suggestion, azrael

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.
