To begin with, I’m using 64-bit DS 4.5 Pro (version 126.96.36.199) on PC running 64-bit Windows-8.
I don’t know whether this is a DS 4.5 problem or a Windows-8 problem of a combination thereof….
In previous versions of DS (and Windows), when using the Figure Setup Tools, I could drag and drop an object (via “adding geometry”) onto the tree of a project and, when created, the objects would appear in the main window.
However, ever since upgrading to 4.5 (and Win-8), I have the recurring problem that all appears well…
Until I “create” the figure and discover that, depending upon tree structure, I either have all files not show up or some of them not show up.
See example pics below (THAT ARE OUT OF ORDER!).
I’ve even tried loading a figure that I created with DS3, copying the setup into FST (allowing it to import all of the appropriate pieces) and, when “created” I again get only one piece out of thirty showing up (see reference pic #5)
So… either I’m doing something wrong and, if that’s the case, it’s the same methods that I’ve always used with success, or there is something wrong with the application.
