Need a little help here. On one of our computers, the navigation cube isn't visible. We've tried;






CUBE - settings - all different positions to display on screen


What other options/switches should we try?

Use the sysvdlg command at the command prompt and scroll down and find the variables that control the cube settings and adjust accordingly.  When you pick a variable there it gives the options to decide what to set it to.

NAVVCUBEDISPLAY = 1 only displays the Viewcube when you're in a 3D Visual style  (ie not 2D wireframe)


Try NAVVCUBEDISPLAY = 3 to always have the Navvcube displayed. 


Also remember that each viewport has it's own viewcube display setings, so if NAVVCUBEDISPLAY was 1 when you created the viewport(s), you'll have to change it for each viewport.
