HELP - Point Edit Mode is GONE

Post by xenovore »

I just had a script error message flash up, something about a widget; didn't really get to see the specifics.
After that happened, Point Edit Mode does not work. If I right-click on a selected object, the Object Navigation widget disappears briefly, but TS doesn't switch to Point Edit Mode. Also, selecting Point Edit Mode tools, which would normally also switch to Point Edit Mode, does nothing.

I have tried shutting down TS and restarting; no luck. Also, reloading the layout doesn't help.

Obviously, without Point Edit Mode, I can't do a whole lot. Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks!

Well, Reset Context nuked my custom layout, but did not fix the missing Point Edit Mode; still nada when right-clicking a model.

Oh, and 7.61, by the way.

Did you save your custom layout to the Layouts - Configurations library?
Hard to say why PE mode is not working for you without more information
Are you using the Unofficial Update?
Did you install custom Widgets?
Is the PE mode not working in Model or Workspace or both?
Resetting the Default Context should have worked
Best I can guess is your Widgets.RsObj is corrupted in the preobjects folder

I do have custom layouts saved, but now I can't find the Library browser in any of the tool bars.
I'm not using the unofficial update right now.
No custom widgets that I know of.
Haven't tried the Point Edit in Modelview.

I do have a backup folder... I'll see if I can pull a fresh Widgets.Rsobj from there.
Thanks.

Well, nothing I tried did anything... copied Widgets.Rsobj over from the backup copy; no change.

Good thing I have a backup folder, I guess, although it's a bit older...

I was hoping someone had already run into this issue and had a solution, but hey, as a last resort: make sure you made a backup, and restore from that. :D

After you replace the Widgets.RsObj, you must then Reset to Default Context
As far as I know, you are the first to have lost the ability to use Point Edit mode
If it was me, I would save my objects and scenes to a different folder, uninstall tS761, remove the installation folder, and reinstall it.
