ANSYS Meshing Graphics autohide
 
Hello,
I am using Ansys Workbench 14.5 with Windows 7.
Somehow I managed to set the Graphics in Ansys Meshing on autohide. So whenever I activate something else than the Graphics-window, it autohides in the right side. When I activate it, there is, in contrast to the outline for example, no pin to toggle autohide on/off.
This problem just appears with Ansys Mesh, in the Designmanager it works just fine.
Can anyone help me how to deactivate this autohide?
Thanks
Benedikt

Solution
 
So I found the solution. The worksheet was set to autohide and this sets the Graphics to autohide as well. When I deactivate autohide of the worksheet, the Graphics stays in the foreground.

same problem
 
I am having the same issue, using Ansys 14.5.7.
The graphics pane keeps dissapearing when I enter another pane.
Can you tell me where the setting to de-activate the auto-hide is, as i think i have tried all the options i can!!

Thanks,

View->Windows->Reset Layout

Solved this with little crazy method.

The reason why Workbench remembers wrong preferences it's because it saves them every time during shut down in some text files. So, we locate some files with current change time.

For Ansys 17.1:

1. We went to
C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Ansys\v171

2. Then copied all files from this folder to another place (make backup in case of..) and then deleted all files in all subfolders and main catalog "v171". Only files, we leaved empty folders alive:

EKM
en-us
launcher
Mechanica_Report
Qt
RSM

Most of them was text xml files.

3. Then also deleted all files in

C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Local\Temp

After that Workbench restarted with default layout. No more autohiding thing.

P.S. Little update:

To reset workbench to it's defaults you could delete only files in the core directory:
C:\Users\YourUserName\AppData\Roaming\Ansys\v171

Deleting files in subdirectories is not necessary.

There are only temporary txt and xml files there with current preferences, Workbench makes them again after next shut down.

If you want to restore only Design Space features you could delete DS*.xml files in the core directory:
DSAppletBKWin.xml, DSAppletWin.xml
