When using any of the interactive results commands,shown below, a small dialog window showing information no longer appears on screen.
Why and how to make it reappear?
The Floating Interactive Results dialog will be displayed in the same location as it was last closed relative to AutoPIPE's application window. Therefore, if moving the application window or switching between dual-monitor to single-monitor setup can easily open the dialog out of the current viewing space. Typical this issue would be resolved by closing AutoPIPE, rebooting the computer, restart AutoPIPE, open a model, and initiate a command to view results information on the floating results dialog. If this does not resolve the issue, the problem is specifically related to the AutoPLAN.CNF file.
Close AutoPIPE, open User's Profile Path, locate AutoPLAN.CNF file, delete AutoPLAN.CNF from this folder, restart AutoPIPE, and try to open the floating interactive Results dialog again.
Note: If AutoPLAN.CNF file is deleted from the Users Profile Path, when restarting AutoPIPE the program automatically copies this file from program files path over to the roaming folder.
Locate AutoPLAN.CNF on another computer running the same version of AutoPIPE (ex. co-worker, etc..). After receiving the file, copy / paste file into the User's Profile Path folder to overwrite the existing file, and restart AutoPIPE.
As a last resort, reinstall AutoPIPE.
The Floating Interactive Results dialog is available for use, however, highly suggest using AutoPIPE's Results grids instead. The Results grids displays a dynamic spreadsheet interface to review results information.
- Able to see all the information in spreadsheet format
- Controls to turn on / off load combinations, (see all or just one specific combination).
- Double click column headings to put column in chronological increasing order, double click again to put column in chronological decreasing order
- Highlight active sheet view and copy directly to MS Excel for more interactive manipulations.
In summary, AutoPIPE's Results grids is a far superior command when reviewing information than the Floating Interactive F3 / Results dialog.
