SW 2018, insert a weld symbol but won't let me edit it afterward. Won't even highlight
Double click the weld symbol to open the properties dialogue.
Reselect the "Weld Symbol", then the text box seems to become reactivated.
Most likely the weld symbol dialog is "off screen". You can follow these steps to try to move it back onto the screen or reset your user settings via registry which will reset the dialog location values.
Ya got a screenshot of what you're seeing on your end?
So this is a pretty old thread, but since I was looking for an answer and I found this unanswered question, I thought I'd update at least something for the next guy who may have this problem.
My issue was that when opening my drawing, the text box which contains "stitch" was greyed out and I could not edit the text.
After a bunch of clicking and clicking, I reselected the weld symbol using the box directly to the left, and was then able to change the text that I had to the text "stitch".
Now, by the way, when I reopened the drawing to take a screenshot of the dialogue box as below, the dialogue box opens and the input box is not greyed out, so my problem is gone away.
Is this what you looking to do?
sometimes you cant fill out other parts of the weld symbol till you actually pick a type of weld that you looking to do.
