FC Menu goes away after applying the Part WB Geometry Check and switching back to Part Design WB

Post by tom » Sun Aug 02, 2020 11:43 am

Hi,

on MacOS I see an issue with the FC menu after performing a geometry check in the Part WB and switching back to the Part Design WB. In that case the whole menu becomes empty:

Can anybody else reproduce the problem? Is it MacOS related or does it occur on other platforms too?

It seems to be the same issue that changes the possibility to toggle visibility in the tree. Can ou please check if there exists already an entry in the tracker?

As a workaround it helps to switch to another screen and back; so for me it is just two swipes and everything is back to normal.

That is an interesting observation, which I wasn't aware of. I thought that the issue was QT related and only some menu redraw was missing. But now I checked your observation and indeed both effects are related to each other. So, it's more than just a redraw issue.

I didn't find anything.

Switching to another application and back to FC works too as a workaround. Thank you for that hint.
