Custom New Macro Button Triplicates

Recently running into this issue.

I have created 4 Macros and then assigned them to "New Macro Buttons" and applied some custom bmp icons.

Macros and their icons are managed in the vault (PDMPro 2020 SP2.0).

I Opened the system one day and the icons had just duplicated. 

I though it was a glitch so, I removed them completely, restarted SW, then added all 4 again from scratch.

After restarting SW again they had triplicated


Cannot seem to get rid of them and have a single button for each macro

once you try and remove one of them the rest of the buttons "deactivate" as in they cease to be clickable and the link to the macro location disappears, as if all copies of the same button were "associated"


Video attached for clarification


Anybody have any idea what's happening? or maybe know how to "clear" solidworks' memory of those buttons so it doesn't triplicate them?


Driving me crazy



Windows 10 Pro 64-bit (2004)

SW 2020 SP 3.0

PDM server is on 2020 SP 2.0


Thank you
