For some reason, out of the blue, my selection pop-up window started coming up in the collapsed state. See the attached screen shot. Can anyone tell me what setting I need to change to get it back to the normal expanded state?
The solution is to upload an old SolidWorks setting file that predates the problem but is from the version of SolidWorks you are currently using. If you don't have one, you can use the regedit solution, but don't bother with Step 1 or Step 5, or uploading any setting file that postdates the problem. The problem will reappear as soon as you do that. You will just have to go through and change your settings manually.
If it is very important for you to have measure display in the uncollapsed state, maybe do a quick registry reset. You can always go back to your original setup.
If someone has a simpler answer than disregard this, however, it takes 15 seconds to reset reg and go back to your old one.
If you have a custom user interface save it using "Copy Setting Wizard".
Steps to fix your issue:
Hope this helps,
Well, it worked...until I uploaded my settings. Then it went right back to how it was. Any idea where in the settings this is controlled?
Never mind. I had an older settings file sitting around. I uploaded that, and now the problem is fixed.
Happy to help out, good luck in the future
Just a reminder to select the question has been answered if it the solution worked for you.
Thank you Greg,
Hi Greg ,
I would be careful with using the copy settings file if it is between versions of the software.
It is fine to use a backed up settings file if it of the same release (i.e SW2016 settings file being uploaded to SW2016) but it can be dangerous doing this between releases (i.e SW2015 settings file being uploaded to SW2016)
this can cause registry corruption and glitching in Solidworks.
I would look to Alen's original response or clarify the solutions
Thanks and I'm glad you could resolve your issue.
