Added a thread to a part and File>Save. Now no feature or sketch tools are available.
Yes! I used the explode command to remove the "explode", now everything is gray. I'll get back to work on this in the AM. At this point I cannot even close the model or Solidworks itself.
Maybe you open part in "Quick view" mode? Its look like this.
Or you save with any protect options? I don't know - maybe its possible in new versions - I have older.
Or... restart copmuter?
Thanks for trying to help. Using Solidworks 2017. Not familiar with Quick View Mode, but not using it intentionally. Newer PC running Windows 10. Trying restart.
Is your part in Exploded state?
You may be getting a pop up off the side of your screen that could be causing this. Try checking the edges of your monitor for any small amounts of a pop up that could be there.
How do you enter/exit/suppress exploded view? How do you tell what view you are currently in? Can't find any pop-ups. At this point I cannot even close the model or Solidworks itself.
