Has anyone had the following problem. I'm in Modeler, and I go to use the numeric function of say the Lathe tool. When I hit activate, the numeric window disappears, or appears to be behind the main window. At the very least it is unreadable. I have to exit LW modeler, and then go back to it. Any help is appreciated.

The problem was first introduced with the 7.5b update, it's been noted in a number of other threads.

Thanks for that info. I guess I should have asked if there was a fix available, or if I was doing something wrong. I did try a search for " Disappearing Windows ", but got nothing relevent. Thanks for the reply anyway :)

No fix as far as I know, no your not doing anything wrong.

Just be positive and think of it as an enhancement. You open the Surface Editor, then open the Preset Shelf and what do you know the Surface Editor dissapears to give you more room to look at your Presets :)

Thanks Riki,
I would do that if it was the surface editor. The problem I have is in modeler. Its the Numeric panel that gets Funky. I can't open it again after it does that without exiting modeler and starting over. Thanks again for the input,

the numeric panel should be still there, just sitting beneath the main window.
