  1. Problem resolved itself. After several reboots, I checked back and all is well. So it goes.
  2. I actually had some problems with the Attributes Palette on my PC. It wouldn't act properly unless it was docked. I had to reinstall the program for another reason, and the problem cleared up. Hope I don't have to do that again for this issue.
  3. This is the only pallette that acts like this. It is 2013 on 10.9.1 My other pallettes only go to 2 icons wide as opposed to one icon on PC and they don't "snap" like on the PC. Annoying but tolerable. Oh yes, and I know about the green button. This is the larger of the 2 sizes.
  4. Just switched back to Mac and have had a bit of a learning curve with the way the Mac handles things. However, I think I have a bit of a problem with the Attributes window. 1. I can't resize it 2. There is no color dialogue box. 3. It just doesn't look like it's supposed to. Enclosed is a screen shot of what it looks like. 2.3 GHz Intel Core 17 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 ignore processors in signature.
  5. My new 2013 VW13 dusc has been "initializing" for over 15 minutes? Is this normal or is there a problem
  6. Thank you. It was actually a series of undos. But they came after I had selected then de-selected a series of units. No units were deleted.
  7. Every now and then my Instrument Object Window changes the type of information that is presented. I have no idea how it gets there, and I have equally no idea on how to get back to Unit Numbers, Channels, etc. What is the magic key sequence to get back to what I need. JT
  8. Wow...that was so easy....thanks
  9. Well, Jim, if you hit the Tab key the box you need for location will appear. Hope that helps.
  10. I'm certain there is a simple answer here. If I set the origin at the corner of a square, I used to be able to get the exact x,y dimensions either in a box by the cursor or at the top of the page. I am running 2011 and when I set the origin, it appears nicely on my page rulers, but these rulers do not provide the accuracy I need when moving the cursor. Hope that makes sense.
  11. Not sure if turning off Exchange helps or not. I think it does. After 5 straight crashes, I deleted the .xml file and THAT is what stopped the crashes.... for awhile. My thought was that since Exchange creates the xml, why not just turn it off until I need it. So far, so good.
  12. I think that cuts closer to my problem than anything else. My symbols folder is a hodge podge of self created stuff and adapted stuff that has been with me since .mcd days. I think one of these days, I'll have to go into that folder and purge what I don't need (Studio Spot?????) and just redo all the ones that I use all the time. Not sure, though, why turning off Lightwright exchange solves the problem temporarily. Did not have this problem at all in 10.
  13. Crashed again. This time I just moved a unit. Quick fix, as usual, delete the Lightwright exchange files. In fact I just turned it off. I'll turn it on when I need it.
  14. Turned out I had my install disk with me. So far so good, but I haven't done any heavy lifting yet.
