Suddenly today my open dialogue box has reverted to an old-fashioned looking small thing about 7" x 4 1/2" which only shows 7 files at a time. Always before I got a nice big Windows Explorer style box nearly filing the screen. I'm running Windows 7 and Inventor 2011. Is there a switch somewhere to revert to the 'old' type box and that's got switched somehow? Thanks.
Just resize it.. the size should stick until changed again.
Or are you saying its a different type of dialog box.. (If so might want to check your user permissions for windows to see if they changed any)
I have the same experience, running Windows 7 x64 and Inventor 2010.
And I do resize my dialog-box, every time - all the time.
And it sometimes (but rarely) keep the size, mostly within one session but almost never between sessions.
And certainly never after a reboot.
Hoping for a solution.
I still have the same problem, even after 2 new PC's and change from XP to Win7-64, and now running Inventor 2013.
I 2-3 times a day adjust the File Open dialogue-box, but it eventially returns to the default diminutive state.
Annoying, to say the least.
