When opening any tool in the ProStructures application the dialog boxes do not appear at all or appear way bigger than usual.
If you are using multiple screens and closed any ProStructures dialogs on another screen instead of the main screen then those dialogs position gets fixed at that screen location which stores in *_WndCfg.sve file and when you use only a single main screen then those dialogs do not appear. These *_WndCfg.sve file are located at where the PS_WNDCFG config variable is defined.
The solution to this problem is to delete all *_WndCfg.sve files that will reset all dialogs to their default position. It´s mostly needed to delete these files when you switch monitors or resolution.
There are two ways to fix this issue, please follow the one which suits you.
1. If ProStructures is running then, please close the application.
2. Go to the below path which is defined by the config variable PS_WNDCFG and delete all *_WndCfg.sve files.
Path: DriveName:\Users\<User Name>\AppData\Local\Bentley\ProStructures\10.0.0\prefs\Personal_WndCfg
3. Launch the ProStructures and check your tool dialog which should appear now at default location.
One can use ProSteel Tools as an add-in in the ProStructures where you find one tool that resets all dialogs to their default position.
For more information about this, kindly follow the below wiki link-
Wiki: 'PST Dialogs Standard Position' tool
In this way, by both the methods one can get all the ProStructures dialog boxes to their default location.
