I was told by one fellow CATIA V5 cad driver to go to management (start>all programs>catia>tools>settings management). You don't even have to bring up catia. Well it works but the window is so small, you can't even read the stuff. You can see the user interface, but it ends before you see the P1, P2, P3 part. And of course for some reason you can't change the size of the window. I'm on windows seven. All I see are some grid lines and a spec tree. HELP!!!
if ur using windows Xp then go to C:\Documents and Settings\Local Settings\Application Data\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp.
if ur using windows 7 then C:\Documents and Settings\Local Settings\Application Data\roaming\DassaultSystemes\CATTemp.
delete all cat setting files and ur catia start as normal like u installed newly.
Thx a lot, had a bug with the P3 interface and couldnt go back to the original one. I tried uninstalling/reinstalling unsuccessfully. Then I saw your answer. God bless.
Go to Tools -> Options -> General. The first line is User Interface Style, with P1, P2, and P3. Make the change here.
Chris, Thanks for getting back to me but I don't think you read my whole comment. When you are in platform 3 you can't even see tools or options or general.
What release are you using? I'm in P3 right now with R20, and everything shows up fine. Do any of the toolbars show up around the sides?
Hi Chris I've been on Catia since 2004 and never had this happen to me. I'm on my laptop and using rev19 sp2. Nope I get no toolbars. Just a perspective grid and a product spec tree. Absolutely no toolbars or anything else.
