In Civil 3D 2012 - Style Edit > Display Tab... Can not collapse layer column?

In Civil 3D 2012

Style Edit > Display Tab...  Can not collapse layer column?

 

See attached image.

 

This is happening on any object style that I try to edit.

 

In 2011 and 2013 it displays correctly on the same machine.

 

Any thoughts?

The 2012 profile style dialogue settings for the columns are stored in the registry here -

 

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R18.2\ACAD-A000:409\Profiles\<<C3D_ANZ>>\Dialogs\AeccUiPpVbStyleDisplayProps\ColumnInfo]

 

replace <<C3D_ANZ>> with your active profile name.

 

The key AeccUiPpVbStyleDisplayProps:CListCtrl::1864 stores the values for the columns widths.

 

On my machine if I set the value to for the key to "0:1:" the column widths reset to the default widths.

 

If you can access the registry and set the value as above, this may fix your problem.

 

Of course the usual warnings about backing up the registry apply, etc.

Wow, that's horrible.  I'm assuming if you move the slider bar all the way to the right you still don't find the end of the Layer column?

I do see the end.  And it does display the rest of the columns, but can't slide the column back to normal size.

when you slid to the end of the view and saw the other end of the header, did you try double clicking the line to pop it back?

Yes,  I tried.

It works fine on the Compnent Type and Visible columns, but the rest are locked down and way, way at the end.

I've tried right-clicking on the column headers, doubleclicking, and sliding.  Nothing!

This solved my similar problem in Civil3D 2013 also. It at least got me in the correct "neighborhood" in the registry. Thanks!
