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
