How do I stop the layout window from opening by default every time I open a .3dm document
Right… That’s a bit annoying. Id prefer opening it myself - when I want to.
I can see where this might be annoying. I don’t know, it certainly would help with discovery of layouts if you are handing the file to users without much experience with layouts, but…
I’m logging this in MR-2894. Do others have strong opinions about this?
It seemed to happen for a while, but I haven’t seen it in the last week or 2, I did upgrade to Sierra about that time, coincidence? I think I just kept closing the layouts window and on a Rhino restart it hasn’t opened. This is no way a scientific experiment. But I closed Rhino about an hour ago to move some files around and on reopening Rhino 5.2 (not WIP) the layout window didn’t open.
I already mentioned this as part of my comments here
I just downloaded the new 5.2.3 build. No layout window with a new file.
yes it is unnecessary in my opinion, be better to open layouts when you need them rather than automatically opening
I’m still getting that issue with the 5.2.3 version
Hey Randy, what I filed in the issue does relate to new files, but rather ones that already have layouts, FWIW. It’s a minor bug, in my mind, and behaves differently depending on how you open it.
For example, I just saw that if I drag the file onto the Rhino dock icon, it opens the layout window, but it puts it behind the main modeling window. If I use the File > Open dialog, the “bug” appears…I’m not really even sure how fixable this bug is.
Got it Dan, I see that now. Not a big issue with 2 monitors. It opens over there —> lol.
Is it possible to view layouts without a new window opening ?
Agreed. Please don’t open to layout view.
