Style Manager Palette Blank
Read 2465 times

For no reason the Style Manager Palette has gone blank as shown in the attachment. All other palettes are working fine. Can anyone let me know why and how to fix.
Thanks Bob

Change to a different palette, i.e. Selection Info, save the drawing, restart TC and see if that help  when going back to Style

Thanks Torfinn, have tried what you have recommended. No result. This is a strange one not experienced before. Maybe I might try re installing TC.
Maybe some one from Turboteck can help.
Thanks Bob

Bob, have you tried re-Starting your computer?  That's one of the first three things I try when I have weird "hiccup" occurrences in TurboCAD:  First, I try close/re-open the drawing file; then I try close/re-open TurboCAD; if no luck, I then I re-Start the computer, usually opting to actually Shut Down, then power back up... just to be sure.

That usually solves these "strange" types of occasional occurrences for me.

I have rectified the problem & just is case some one down the track experiences the same problem, the solution: close TC, insert the TC disc, select the repair radio button and follow the onscreen instructions.

Hi Bob

The reason for my answer is that i have the same problem :), but in my case it's from Design Director, the option i first give is the esy first test, i did test this  and restart computer etc etc, before i finaly re install TC, not using repair, but un/ reinstall.

Have you try'd to save the drawing with the Style Manager palette activ/ open, closed TC and restart TC/ open the actual drawing and then checked the Style Manager ???
Would be nice to know if your way can be the solution, as i still can reproduce this problem anytime i want  ::)

Hi Torfinn, I tried your solution, plus many others before I did the repair option. This is the first time it has happened to me and hopefully the last.

Hi Bob

The reason for my question are to find out if your solution solve the problem, in other word, if you save the drawing with Style manager active/ open, close TC and then restart TC with the same drawing, is the problem still gone ??

I did a un/ reinstall and if i save with Design Director open , close/ restart TC, the problem still exist

Hi Torfinn, once I did the repair job, all was fine. The style manager palette was active when I saved and closed the file, when the file was reopened the style manager palette was active.
