I seem to be stuck in 3D drawing view mode.
entering the view and then clicking on the X in the toolbar does not seem to exit the mode either.
what simple click am I missing here.
Seems like something running in the background?
i do not think so.
I think i somehow changed a setting without realizing it.
Question is , which one?
Right click the drawing area and select
Have you tried clicking here?
i have SW 2015, so those menu boxes do not show that way for me.
I do seem to be back on track.
However, now in a part the shaded with line display icon is greyed out.
It is accessible in a drawing.
If the shaded with line was fine before and is now greyed out it is usually indicating a graphics issue. If a re-boot of Solidworks doesn't change it you may have to update your graphics driver.
Do you have a window off your monitor?
Hold down Windows button, at same time push an arrow button until window shows.
the reboot of the system solved things.
The 3d icon is now gone back to where ever it should be and all shades are again available.
thanks for that tip about windows that have slid off the screen because I do operate with dual monitors that are not the same size display.
