Hi everyone,

I am trying to locate the "View > Layers: Flatten Layers"

or

"View > Layers: Object Collapser" in my Modeler 8.5.

The documentation that I have for LW8 says these should be there, but in my version of 8.5 they do not appear.

What am I missing?!!

Thanks so much,

Maz

If your menu layout is the default Lightwave 8 layout then it should be under View>Layers>Flatten Layers.If it's not there then you will have to add it manually using Edit>Menu Layout.

Thanks a lot for your reply,

I accidentally clicked on default after going to “Edit > Menu Layout” and a lot of objects reappeared including “Object Collapser,” but not “Flatten Layers!”

As I recently installed 3D Arsenal, I am wondering if that messed things up?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Maz

As far as I know I don't think installing 3D Arsenal would have messed it up since the .cfg files will have different names and shouldn't conflict with each other.

Hi Nicolas,

Unfortunately the .cfg files of 3D Arsenal carry indeed the same name and as the installation tutorial implies they do replace those of Lightwave.

I really think this is where the problem lies.
