Inventor-Insert Frame dialog box suddenly doesn't open anymore

Joanna Gryszka

The Frame Generator 'Insert Frame' command isn't opening a dialog box anymore in Inventor.

Insert_Frame

It used to work but now it doesn't seem to invoke the command at all.

In the Status Bar it stays at 'Ready' but should update to show the command prompt 'Select a line or drag a window':

Insert Frame-status bar

If the command seems to be working( with 'Select a line or drag a window' in the Status bar) but you don't see the dialog box, try this to get the dialog box back from off screen:

If the dialog box still can't be found try the Inventor Reset Utility:

If the command doesn't start check that the Content Center Libraries are all available and set the correct location.

In Application Options > Content Center tab > Access Options, select Vault Server or Desktop Content:

Access Options

Verify that the Project is configured to use all the available Content Center Libraries:

Configure CC libraries

If none of the previous steps help, perform a clean uninstall to fix it:

Inventor clean uninstall
