Rhino 6 different result open file directly or via open file

Goodday all,

A customer of ours has a specific problem and maybe someone knows what is happening. When they open the file by double click they get a different result than opening it with Rhino => File => Open…

  • Changing display view doesn’t change anything
  • The Picture frames do contain the images
  • Opening the same exact file via Desktop or File => Open different results
  • This happens with every file

Hereby some screenshots:

Opening as it should via Rhino => File => Open:

Hereby SystemInfo of the system:

All help is appreciated.



Hi Jordy - does it make any difference if the user disables LutraCAD in options > Plug-ins page, and closes Rhino and tries the same test?


Hi Pascal,

Thank you for your reply.

Sadly it didn’t work.

What is weird is if I add a new picture frame and if I select something or deselect the other pictureframes will change, but when I check the location of the image of the existing ones it shows the correct image.

Any other ideas?

Hi Jordy - if you can send us the file, that would be best I suppose - tch@mcneel.com, with a link back to this topic in your comments, please. If you can reproduce the problem in a simplified file without geometry that would be even better.
And, just in case: what does the camera and target locations look like in that view in Properties (no selection)?
