How do you change Catia V5 P3 platform back to P2?

By Jim on 31 Mar 18:01 3 answers 9004 views 3 comments

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.

    Go to Tools -> Options -> General. The first line is User Interface Style, with P1, P2, and P3. Make the change here.

    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?
