Topic: [HELP] - Element Editor Unavailable

Hello guys,

I was using for a few weeks the 0.7 version on Windows.
Since yesterday I am no longer able to "Edit Elements" or create a new one either.

Tried Uninstall/Reinstall, PC reboot and so on.

When I click "Edit Element" a new windows appears in the explorer bar tough, so it "opened" somehow, but when I click the icon nothing happens.
Still, other old edited elements can be placed nevertheless.

Happened before with someone?

Hi,

like this warning message "You are not allowed to modify this element. Thus it will be edited read-only."?

Re: [HELP] - Element Editor Unavailable

Hi scorpio.
No, not trying to edit a existing element, its more like this:

- Select to create "New Element" or "Edit Element" for an existing one.

- A new Qelectrotech Icon for the editing window appears on the system tray bar but the windows "don't appear"

- Hovering the mouse over the icon shows an blank screen for the "opened editor" and the Qelectrotech main screen

Hi Haroldo,

A new Qelectrotech Icon for the editing window appears on the system tray bar but the windows "don't appear"

Very strange, you can't switch to editor with ALT -TAB shortcuts?

Have you tried to delete QET config keys in regedit, if the version is installer?
Is the installer, or ReadyToUse version?

Re: [HELP] - Element Editor Unavailable

Strange Indeed.

- Can't change on ALT + TAB, tough it appears on the alt+tab menu.

Didn't changed anything on regedit, may look on that.

- Installer Version

Update: Tried a "clean" reinstall, uninstalled, deleted folders and the remaining user collection folder.
Turned off pc, then on, reinstalled.
First time on PC tried to edit an existing element, was able to.

Changed Lang and closed the program, reopened it, were unable to change it again...

But I think that english doesn't have much to do with it.

Re: [HELP] - Element Editor Unavailable

Scorpio,
Just fixed it.

I was using 2 monitors before,main one placed on center and another right aligned on windows.
Changed the second monitor of position on windows to the left of the main monitor.

The element editor were still displaying window on the slot were it was used before, making it unable to see, also it was unable to move since the display didn't exist.

Dont know if it is a window reference bug.

Thanks for all!

  Haroldo,
thanks for your feedback.
.
QET save window editors geometry in config, under Windows is stored on Regedit.
But when you uninstall QET this key isn't removed on Regedit.

You can delete in Regedit HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\QElectroTech\
