Lost Frame Analysis Menu Bar

525 Views, 3 Replies

When I go to Environments>Frame Analysis, I used to get a menu for Constraints, Loads and other settings (similar to the Stress Analyisis menu).  I don't get that now.  I can right-click on an existing simulation and add constraints and loads, but I would really like to get the menu back.

 

I can go to tools>Customize, Toolbars tab and Frame Analysis Panel is there.  I can click Show and it will show the panel but it stays up all the time.  Not what I want.

 

I have tried resetting the menu, repair installing Inventor and Reinstalling Inventor, but still not joy.  How do I get this back to the original setting so that it comes up when I select Frame Analysis?

 

This is in 2011.

Hi Kirk,

 

  I haven't seen this behavior before.  When you say you've tried resetting the menu, this is resetting the Ribbon? (RMB on Ribbon => Ribbon Appearance => Reset Ribbon).

 

  There are two possible issues / solutions:

 

1)  The RibbonCustomization xml file isn't right.  With Inventor closed, try renaming (or deleting) it.  Inventor will automatically re-populate it the next time you launch.  You can find the file path by looking at the value in the registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\RegistryVersion15.0\System\Preferences\UIStyle.  To get to the registry, use Windows Start menu => run regedit)

 

(e.g. Using Windows 7, mine is located here: C:\Users\henderh\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\Inventor 2011\RibbonUICustomization.xml)

 

2)  If this doesn't work, try renaming the "UI Customiztaion V5" registry folder.  If the registry folder is deleted or renamed, Inventor will create a new one when launched again.  There could be a problem with the Frame Analysis settings

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\RegistryVersion15.0\UI Customization V5\Environments\FrameAnalysisEnvironment

 

  Does it look like my version in the attached screen capture?

 

  Beware though that if you delete the folder you'll lose all UI customizations, that's why it may be safer to just rename them, so you can revert back to the original name if it doesnt fix the issue.

 

Hope this helps, and we apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.

 

Thanks, -Hugh

Note: From version 2012 is ribbon customization stored in file InventorCustomization.xml.

Related issues should be fixed by rename/delete of this file.

I just had this issue in Inventor 2015... random as. But this fixed it. I found the file in the User AppData Roaming folder for Inventor 2015.
