New marking menu disappearing off my screan at the bottom

Has anyone found a solution for the Marking menu that cuts off the bottom of the screen yet? This is very anoying that on some PC's if clicking somewhere closer to the bottom of the screen a portion of your context meny cuts off. If you click even lower then it jumps to the top but there is an area where it does not work.

I have tested on my two machines in sketch, part and assembly mode and I don't see the problem.

 

Maybe you should check your Graphic Card settings, you may have turned on Nview (NVidia) or ATI Control Center.

 

I would disable these utilities and do further testing.

 

Jon.

I just install 2012 2 weeks and I have the same problem right click with new marking menu pull down missing feature pull down.

I like the marking menu but this right click missing thing really bother me a lot.

If the object you seleted in the middle of the scren then the click pull ussually missing last 2 feature.

See the 2 picture attached.

I hope there is fix for this.

I try many thing about the video setting and diffrent driver.

F.Y.I

We have 36 Inventors work station and they all have the same issue missing menu.

Thanks

Hi stevenguy,

 

The behavior you're seeing is just the way it is, unfortunately. I would expect that Autodesk will address this in a future release, or maybe even a fix for the current one, but I'm not aware of one at this point.

 

Another option is to change your right-click menu back to the classic menu if that helps:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis

Thanks Curtis

 

Autodesk,

I & my company like the new technology and new feature that help the designer move faster and all the control at the mouse point.

This is why we have subscription pay to support your engineer and we have to wait another year to get this bug fixed then we may have another one to lived with agian.

 

The marking menu right click is great and this little bug in the software and I have to give the marking menu is not acceptalbe.

I am sure there is a way to fix this.

 

Thanks
