At some point while trying to work around some of the limitations with respect to genesis, autofit and morphs something happened and autofit no longer works correctly. The obvious visible symptom is that in the autofit dialog there are two drop downs, the first for the figure and the second for the type of item. The first drop down (figure) is fine, but the second is only populated with “None”. For any given item this sometimes works and sometimes does not. There are some additional problems that may or may not have anything to do with this.
My question is this: I’ve reinstalled Carrara to no avail. I’ve gone through every item in ~/Library that is Carrara related and compared to a working system (differences have seemed trivial). I’ve removed files that are regenerated. There are a few frameworks under /Library but they are identical to what is on a working system.
Although I recently installed DS4.5 (to compare behavior with genesis in carrara) I don’t think that is implicated because this symptom appeared during a solid session of working solely with Carrara where it was working and then ceased. At this point I’m not sure what else to try. I wish I knew how Carrara constructed that drop down menu to have an idea of where to look. Because the executable is the same (and it still fails to work after reinstalling to a different location) I don’t see how the issue can be attributed to do the application bundle. There must be something else on my system that is causing the problem and I can’t figure what.
