Somehow I have my Quick Access Toolbar missing in my SW2020 SP4. I see that in SP3 it moved from the menu to CM inadvertently - but in my case, it is missing altogether?
Hey Mark, I seen something on the same line. Restoring my copy settings wizard seemed to do the trick. Not sure where this disconnect happened but it does seem related to "upgrades" versus new installs. I didn't put that much research into it, but glad (or not glad) someone else is seeing it.
Thanks John, I'll give that a try. I already tried setting my custom menu "reset all" back to default but didn't work to resolve the problem. I'll try the copy settings wizard next.
Thanks for the tip John, that worked, unfortunately, I lost the customization of one of my CM tabs, but that's okay.
No problem Mark. Sometimes you just find the fix and don't dive into the problem too deeply. I think for me it depends on the frequency of the problem and how much it bugs me.
I recently installed 2020 SP4 and found that the View(Heads-Up) toolbar was not there.
I was able to activate by right clicking on a blank screen.
I was able to turn the toolbar.
Now that it's on I can't shut it off, not that I want to.
I lost this toolbar in 2019 and managed to turn it back on this way.
I have not been able to figure out how I managed to shut it off.
A lot of stuff gets buried in the registry, and when you have something get broken it can hold onto that. I lost my spacebar/view box once and didn't realize it, exported my copy settings which in turn kept it off forever. I eventually used an older settings file (not recommended to use unless you are in a bind) that didn't have the problem and then just had to fix all the changes I've made. This is why I recommend keeping a few versions of your settings files. It can be a real lifesaver!
Make a change to your system options or overall layouts and customizations...make a new file! Don't let it sit around. Now that you can export a file while you have SOLIDWORKS open, there is no excuse.
I wish I could help, but I updated from sp 2.0 to sp 4.0 last week and I haven't seen that. My settings all look like yours.
