I have run into a problem with LW 9.5 on Windows where none of my IK booster nodes (the little blue circles at each bone joint or the square at the object pivot point) show x,y,z or h,p,b channels on them.

For example:

go into Layout
add a null
go to modify tab
click on IK Booster tool (or use control-B)
right click on null and Apply IK Booster

a blue square shows up. It should be an orange square and show the x, y, and z channels next to it. Also, I see the IKB menu in the lower right corner of the screen, but no keyframe mode menu in the lower left.
The IKB menu only has one menu item: Options.

Going further, if I add bones to the null, each bone I select has a blue circle but no h,p,b channels.

Anyone experience this?

Are you using the release verson of 9.5 or the beta?

I have been using LW v9.5 release version, not the beta.

The odd thing is that the correct functionality existed a few days ago.
I have not made any changes to LW since installing LW v9.5.

Perhaps I should remove the installation and re-install?

Might not be a bad idea. The release version was so buggy as to be pretty much unuseable for me at least.

I deleted all versions of LW and my config files and installed LW 9.6 release and that fixed the problem. Thank you!
