Still using older Microvellum. The toolbox became undocked. Can anyone help how you re-dock? MV instructions of double clicking top bar is not working.
try typing "MVTB67" in the command line. Its been a while since I touched 67 but I think this is the way it is redocked.
Try right clicking on the upper edge, or is it the inboard edge. I can't remember. I am using toolbox 7 and have for two years and if 6.7 is working for you stay with it. Toolbox 7 does not have enough advantages to honestly make it work the effort. Zero improvement in machining capabilities.
Right click on the right side of the MV toolbox panel (in the grey) and choose anchor left or right. You also may have to uncheck the auto hide if that is your preference.
Thank you all for the assistance. It is a right click on the right side of the toolbox, but you must have 'Make Panel' window open.
we have been debating upgrading to V7 but hate to think of starting all over again because we have a lot of custom products. the true shape nesting looks like it might be worth it. But we've been so busy I haven't had time to mess with it.
If you're willing to take the jump to version 7, be prepared, it's a LONG road. The good news is you don't have to rebuild you're library. There are a few tweaks needed, but you can reuse most of what you created in 67. The only issue I had when converting my 100% from scratch custom library is machine tokens that were on the machining tab in the spreadsheet "fell off" when I converted. You see, version 7 doesn't have the constraint of 10 machine tokens, then they go to the machining tab...you can have unlimited machine tokens, and they all stay on the designated part's row.
Your reports will be a complete rewrite.
Plan on a development computer with version 7 on it, and stay with that until you are 110% sure that the ENTIRE process will work in production....try a few jobs when you think it will work.
I have been trying to get up and running with version 7 for a few months now (as time allows). I keep reverting back to 67 for production because of issues. It will be great when it's done, but it's an arduous task...
There are several solid advancements made with version 7, it just seems some of the foundational stuff has been missed or changed, and is causing me some heartburn.
It hasn't been nearly as easy as it should be, but I'm hopeful that all the effort will be worthwhile in the long run.
