View Full Version : Render done, LW won't come to front!

06-01-2004, 01:23 PM
I've had a render going all morning and into this afternoon...I can't get Lightwave to show any windows; if I click on the LW icon in the dock, I see Lightwave menus in the menu bar, but even "Bring all to Front" doesn't make any windows appear.

Any suggestions on how I can make this happen? I'd hate to lose my image after 8 hours' render time!

What if you right-click on the dock icon and select the window from there?

Always F10 your long renders!

i would right click on the dock icon, and then select quit... bringing up a modal popup window that could "force" Lightwave to the front, or make it crash...

you could also turn Expose on and put it into a hot corner instead of an f-key. This lets you keep it on, anyway... engage the expose and select LW's window from there.

or you could openApple-tab to lw. using the application switcher.

many thanks for the suggestions! I tried them all, to no avail, which suggests that maybe LW was locked up in some way, tho neither the Activity Monitor nor Force Quit window indicated trouble.

I appreciate the help nevertheless!

I think that means it was stuck in a endless loop ~

Force quit the finder and evrything should come to front. Or apple tab selct the app?
