CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

Greetings all...

I'm having a really annoying CATIA Problem...

All of my menu toolbars' icons have been replaced by some kind of TEXT replacement, with NO icon, and it is making things really hard for me....I haven't a clue how this has happened, but this is what it looks like:

(Copy and paste link in a new browser, cause clicking on it sometimes doesn't work for some reason...)

Can someone tell me how I can get all my icons back??

(I've already tried the RESTORE ALL CONTENTS and RESTORE POSITION commands in the Customize sub-menu.....but to no avail...)




RE: CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

OK, the problem has been solved, and as was posted in another thread, the file, "FrameConfig.CATsettings" had to be removed from the following directory:

On Windows NT, it is:

"C:/programfiles/winnt/profiles/(loginname)/application data/dassaultsystems/"

On Windows XP, it is:

"C:/documents and settings/(loginname)/application data/dassaultsystems/"

Thanks for all the help!!


RE: CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

What has happened is that your Catsettings have been corrupted.  You now have to delete your Catsettings folder and then restart Catia, this will add a new default settings folder.
When you have changed the way Catia looks, ie. Options, position of toolbars etc. make a copy of these Catsettings.
So in future you can delete the corrupt folder and replace with the above.

RE: CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem

Thanks for the tip...this problem has happened TWICE since I solved it, and all I had to do was go and delete the FrameConfig.CATsettings file....I'll try a backup of the working one, and then just copy it over...makes more sense, since I have to change all my options back, every time I go and delete the settings file...




RE: CATIA V5R8 Toolbar Problem


because i had the same problem, and because i didnt want to spend to much time setting up my CATIA i use environment.

And as admin i do my settings... when something goes wrong with my user settings i just delete them ... and because i work in a environment i find back my admin setting...

Have fun,
