Can't create a 3D PCB from 2D

Screenshot 2023-08-27 at 8.53.09 PM.pngI have a 2D schematic, and a 2D board designed and ready to push to a 3d board, but I don't see an option to create a new 3D board. The only option I have is to Push to 3D board. Nothing happens when I do that. These boards were previously linked to other 3D boards, but I just want to create a new 3D board based on the 2D drawing. ( I was getting unresolvable 2D/3D out of sync errors)

I have PCBS I can't delete as well. I would suggest that in addition to warning you that a file is referenced in another document that it tell you what other files it is linked to. Better yet, there should be a way to nuke the links and sever ties.

Putting the files in a folder,and deleting the folder doesn't work for this case either.

@mad.macs , please check if the 3D PCB command dialog was docked somewhere on the side panels.

I see what you mean. It's likely the button was below the dock, it's iina n odd spot. You click on a button labeled "Push to 3D PCB" and you expect it to do it. I'm not sure why it takes 2 clicks to accomplish the push. The settings for the push probably don't get changed often, and it seems an unnecessary step.
