No longer get Extended Browser information

When I add a hole feature to my parts, I used to get the extended information in the browser... like extrusion depth, hole size, tap size, depths....etc.

 

Just noticed that I no longer get that.  Not sure exactly when it stopped working correctly.  Checked the Tools >Application Options and I have that checked.  I did a repair install on my Inventor and rebooted and it still does not work.

 

Would really like to get that back.

Kirk,

 

Could you post the part here or send it to me? I cannot reproduce it on my machine.

Thanks!

Just created a new one from scratch.  No extended information.

Kirk,

 

Could you check two places for me?

 

1) Click on the funnel button. Is "Show Extended Names" option checked?

2. Are you running any special Add-Ins not shipped with Inventor R2013?

 

Thanks!

Of coarse I run some add-ins. How am I supposed to work without them..:smileyhappy:  Here is what's loaded.  I will start unloading them and see what happens.
