I am not able to open a symbol in symbol editor. Normally I double click the symbol in the symbol directory in the Library Manager but this time it does not open. I restarted my computer. This look like a bug in VX2.4 with Windows 10.
The symbol which I want to open for edit is not connected to any part. It is an independent symbol which does not open to edit.
If I double click on the symbol in the symbol directory, the symbol editor open for a while and then disappear.
If I open the symbol editor an other way which is tools => symbol editor. The symbol editor open but how to open symbol inside it to edit ?
I have tried to open other symbols but not able to open any of them, is this a bug in VX 2.4 library manager ?
One possible solution is to edit your DxDesigner.xml file in your local wdir folder and remove the GRID_HR key. In VX.2.4 if you change the grid in the symbol editor to .02" it will cause the symbol editor to crash and prevent you from opening symbols.
I have removed the GRID_HR key from DxDesigner.xml file in local wdir folder. This does not help. Any other way to open symbol editor. I am not able to edit any other symbol. The lock folder is empty.
Sometimes when launching the symbol editor from the LM navigator the process gets blocked, one way to address this is to kill off any errant process via task manager. But this is a bit hit and miss and doesn't always work. We haven't found the underlying cause of this issue.
If you open the symbol editor directly from the toolbar you can always then open the symbol by browsing to it from the file menu in the editor and looking in the symbols directory of the library.
robert_davies, Thanks for help. Yes it works now.
The symbol editor crashes again. I was working in the symbol editor with grid .02’’ and it crashes. I have deleted that symbol from the library but not able to open any other symbol in editor even after re-staring computer. Is there any solution to this ? How to open symbol editor if it is crashes ?
Delete the grid setting of 0.02" that is causing the crash. It is fixed in VX.2.5
I have removed "<key name="GRID_HR" value="50800"/>" from DxDesigner.xml file but not able to launch symbol editor.
Check what your grid is set to in Designer and make sure it is not 0.02".
