Hi all, quick question for you...
What controls the default (or memorised) state for the 'associative' setting when placing views?
Reason for asking is, for approximately 3 days now, each time I close and restart Inventor 2014 Pro, it forgets that my preference when placing views on an idw, is to place them associative=ticked.
The memory function is OK whilst Inventor is running, but close Inventor and re-start always results in associative=unticked.
I've checked the options button on the open gui after selecting file, and it is set as it always has been (for 'design view rep' associative=ticked and the pulldown set to 'last active'. But it seems to ignore this and at first start up always has associative=unticked.
Roughly about the same time this started happening, I made a change to our 'Application options'. Strangely though - resurecting the old Application options seems to have fixed this amnesia on start up issue, but nowhere within the application options can I find anything related to 'associative=what' as default option.
Just wondered if anyone had encountered this, or knew what controls the memory state for this option, ie is it 'app options' 'the core inventor program' 'the individual model or assy file'.
Thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just checked the code and we do not save that setting anywhere. Because that dialog is not destroyed everytime you use it it remembers the last value until you quit Inventor.
If we had such an option it would be in the Drawings Tab of the App options.
If we add View Styles some day it would be in there I imagine.
Thanks for the reply - now that we have restored a previous 'imported application options' its behaving as expected, and actually remembers the state on quit even after exit of Inventor.
Must have been a bad exported file - it was edited using an xml editor to remove username, so it could more easily be distributed amongst the engineering dept here, but this is something we have done many times previously.
