Now using 2020

Recommended Posts

Started using 2020 yesterday, from 2019 working on first part and in the toolpath manager as I filled up the window I can barely see the arrow at bottom to add more programs without minimizing others above it, is this normal I have never had this issue in any other versions . is there a setting I need to change, or is this yet another aggravating bug to deal with? Capture.PNG.f60bf5471018212434b4d72abe11a701.PNG

Terry and I just moved up to 2020 this week. Did something happen to surface high speed scallop? It's taking FOREVER to process!!!! Did they change something that I need to know about...not cool, wasting forever waiting for the stupid program to process, and then on the previous part, it didn't do anything, and I had to go back to the old surface finish scallop, sigh...doing a go-to meeting with my reseller today...maybe he can help me...

I've noticed this happening on a few windows.  I've had a few project toolpath operations not allow me to scroll down far enough to pick the operation that I wanted to project.  Yea, its frustrating.  I've also had the operation that I wanted to project not even show up in the window until I restart Mastercam. 

If the operation in the window but not visible, I can usually get it down to that operation by using the down arrow key on the keyboard.

I have this problem on my home system.

My main screen is a Dell 27" UltraSharp and the other 2 screens are Dell 24" UltraSharps

If I drag a window from my 27" screen to one of the 24's, it's often too long and I cannot access the bottom

part of the window.

To fix it, I have to drag it back to the 27 and resize it to about 70% of the height of the 27

Then is will all be accessible on a 24" monitor.

I believe this is caused by the difference in screen resolutions between the 27 and the 24's

That's interesting.  I have a 27" main monitor and a 24" on the side. 

The issue that I'm talking about is happening on the main monitor. I'll have to try dragging the window back and forth just to see if it makes a difference.

I have the Tool/Plane/Level /Solids and Cad Tree Managers all docked together

If  they are all docked on my 27" screen in a Mastercam session and I drag the entire dock to my 24" screen the bottom 20% of the windows are out of sight

at the bottom of the 24.

To fix it, I have to drag  the dock back to the 27 and resize it a little.

Then it will all be visible on my 24"

creating a dummy group and keeping it at the bottom usually helps with the disappearing arrow bug.

Terry, Dan said if you minimize the group and then expand it back it will show the arrow correctly. I've tried it and it works, but it seems to go back to half hidden very quickly.

Getting frustrated with 2020. Our machine simulators don't work now. My reseller is working on that. And then this morning, I tried to edit a workplane, and now my entire planes manager is frozen and I don't know how to unfreeze it. I shut down my entire computer and it's still frozen. WTH???? Talk about stupid crap: as mastercam tries to become more intuitive, it just seems to get more stupid...:wallbash:About ready to go back to 2019, so I can accomplish something, sigh...

 

(edit) Maybe I'll rant a little. I NEVER move up to the newest version of mastercam this quickly because of crap like this, but we did all those upgrades this spring and I wanted to stay current, and now it's bitten me in the @ss all week.

Who thought it was a bright idea to split trim/break/extend into 3 separate icons so that now I have to go 3 places to do what was always available in one place before???? I use that function all the time and now I'm chasing it 3 different places, ALL. THE. TIME.:wallbash:

Who messed with the stupid color panel so that it doesn't, fricking work when changing colors outside the small number of 'default' colors??? If you want to use one of the colors in the main color panel, you have to select that first. Then you go back to the graphics window, select the entities you want to change the color on, and ONLY then will it allow you to change the color.:wallbash:

My wonderful, customized machine simulators that my reseller made in 2019 do NOT work in 2020, and even the guy who made the simulation models for us can't figure out why..:wallbash:

And how the h@ll does the planes manager get permanently frozen????:wallbash:

Oh, and I guess I'll add: the annoying red arrow problem that Terry started this thread with...sigh...

So, I'm back in 2019 for now...

Scott
