Where is the "Place" button on the Create Custom Parts??

OK another bug with my Plant 3d. Within the tool pallets - piping components, there's an "Add Custom Part" I click it and a nice window pops up - the custom parts builder window. The documentation shows a Place button http://docs.autodesk.com/PLNT3D/2010/ENU/AutoCAD%20Plant%203D%20User%20Documentation/index.html?url=... BUT I don't have any such button on the window whatsoever. I tried to expand it thinking it might be a graphic related bug like others that I have foundbut still no button.  Also, the other buttons like shape browser is present.

 

Any suggestions on where the missing place button could be would be greatly appreciated

Hi,

 

I have seen this issue occur on some machines if the palette is docked.

If you undock the palette does the "Insert in Model" button appear?

 

Thanks,

Dan

Thanks Dan,

 

That was it - as soon as I undocked the tool palettes from the side of the drawing, the insert button magically appeared.

OOPS, not so fast. Having the same problem and more. Besides the "Place" button, the Builder dialog box is too big for my screen and the bottom is below my workspace; it will NOT resize by dragging the top boarder! When I try, it just jumps a little but stays the same size. It doesn't make any difference if the Properties sections are minimized or not. Maybe the "Place" button is on the bottom, but I can't get to it. Attached is a screen clip.

Just did another check. The Custom Parts Creator dialog with Insert button appears fine on my desktop at 1280x1024 flat screen monitor, & Windows 7 - 32 bit, but it will NOT resize vertically. The size problem of being too big for the monitor display is on my laptop with 1366x768 resolution, Windows 7 - 64bit.
