Rhino WIP Problem

I’m getting a large empty panel that covers most of my screen when I click on the option menu in a tool panel. Any idea’s to why?

Thanks for the report, can you answer these questions pls…

  • What Windows are you running? Send the text from the SystemInfo command.

  • What screen layout do you have… more then one monitor?

  • Does this happen right when you click the gear icon?

I’m running Windows 7 Professional
2 monitors
Yes it happens right when I click the options icon or left click in the tab space on the right-hand tab panel. It seems to only be happening in that tab panel. See the highlighted area in the picture below.

Thanks Tim,
Can you run the SystemInfo command in the Rhino 6 WIP and send that text using the Copy All button? This will have info on the graphics card as well which may be a factor. It will also list the version of the WIP that you’re running.

Hi Tim - somewhat of a shot in the dark but see if testResetWindowPositions sorts it out.


Aside from what Pascal suggested, see if changing your Windows to use a Windows theme versus the Classic theme has any effect as well please.

I changed the Windows 7 theme to Basic. Problem solved!
