    Custom Properties Dialog Locked Small

    Norman Dziedzic

      I have one user with an issue when he goes to edit the custome properties list.  The Dialog box that is supposed to let you edit the list shows up very small and cannot be resized.  it looks like this:



      I have no idea how this happened.  Has anyone seen this before and if so, did you find a way to fix it?

      Running SW2014

          Never seen this. You can try to reset the SolidWorks registry on that machine.


          Close SolidWorks and got to Start > Run > type regedit > go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > SolidWorks > SolidWorks 20XX


          Rename SolidWorks 2014 to SolidWorks 2014-OLD (this is just to keep the backup of existing actually registry file), close the registry and restart SolidWorks. This will essentially reset SolidWorks to its as installed settings, so you will have to set all the options again. If this works, return to the registry and delete the SolidWorks 2014-OLD key.




          Using Copy Settings wizard, copy the SW settings from the other PC which are running fine and install those settings to machine showing issue.


          But all of these option will change any custom setting you have in Tools > Options, toolbar, mouse gestures, etc. so make sure you take a backup of the settings on that machine too before trying anything.
