Annoying problem

Now, i don't know if this has been brought up before but it starts to annyon the *** out of me so here goes.

Whenever i want to edit a part, extrude, chamfer, fillet  dialouge box pops up as usual with dimension info etc. But an additional "box" also shows up on the part or arrow. See the link for a visual explanation.

 

 

Example: http://img189.imageshack.us/i/newfh.png/

 

Is there any way to remove this?

Hi Manuela,

 

I think it's annoying too and if you can't turn it off other than using the classic interface then it's very annoying, not an enhancement.

It's a solution but i still want the new interface. This "function" doesn't really make inventor easier to use. So if you guys have any other options then please let us!

Hello All,

Yes i understand you...maybe Autodesk could add some options to turn ON and OFF the canvas tools. I think there is no way to change unless the change the interface to Classic.

 

Its better start using it because there are news in 2012 about this:  http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Inventor/enu/2012/Videos/direct_manipulation_2012

 

(may come with the option to turn off) :smileyvery-happy:

I can't find a way to turn that part off in 2012 but you can pin it to a set location. That's a plus. I hated how in 2011 it always seemed to be over what I needed to click on.
