I used once, now it will not open. I have used the command material browser open, it does not help. I do not know if i changed a setting or what.

How are you invoking it?

 

RMAT?

 

Works fine here.

I am not sure where this reply is going ?. I had the material browser 1 time, i used it then i went to inventor (with it, first time in that) and i do not now what happened. I have not been able to get to material browser or material library since. ? did i not download it properly or did i leave it in inventor, i have been trying to figure it out, or find it for about 10 - 12 days getting very frustrated. Can you help me please, I'm lost.

Could it possibly be off the screen (I mean like WAY off the screen)?

 

There is a key combination to fix that issue but I cannot remember it right now.  Someone will chime in for that info I am sure.

 

Charlie?

Pendean?

Maybe, I am thinking there was more to the right of render gallery on the render ribbon ? Now it is just a blank spot.

For dialogs, yes: ALT + spacebar, M, arrow key.  I'm not sure that would work for a palette though.  I think the best bet for those would be using the workspace to force it as docked, then manually drag it to the desired undocked location.
