  1. Chally72 gets 10 bonus points here ! The guy is legit "here to help " My issues are solved or in litigation lol
  2. I have custom RMB and my ribbon toolbar(s) Quite a few didn't migrate over. They are not even visible in my custom toolbar or even in the All commands to bring it in. Work around : re install 2023 and in advance install Do Not check Workspace files . Now commands are visible in All Commands and you can re create your 2022 toolbars manually etc. Enjoy !!
  3. Can't stand how small all of the text is in the tool libraries and inside the tool paths themselves. Reseller said no can do... That's how it is.
  4. I had a cat 30 holder stuck in an OKK I left a note, the next day when I came in , it was fixed !?! 3x3 post it , yellow
  5. I have had situations where they disappear, but really there there. Just not visible unless I close completely out of mc then start a fresh session and re open the file There they are...sometimes with dimensioning too.

  12. The auto toolpath regen function is a time saver ( I still note the file sz. Before the # crunch) and the fact 2022 didn't screw me over in all the things / paths I use Im impressed enough to pay maintenance for another go round.
  13. I see this also... Ever listen to the podcast(s) " Darknet Diaries "... Somebody somewhere, for some reason somehow......

  15. Just saw this... Good Luck !! Hopefully you get to start making Trick SCCA car parts etc. !
