Fixing glitched dialogs
Note: The solution will reset your Quick Bar (toolbar just under the ribbon).
If you haven't customized the Quick Bar then just do the 2 steps below.
If you want to be able to restore your Quick Bar customizations, see the "Backing up your Quick Bar" section first (farther below).
1. From the main menu bar, choose File, then click the "Preferences" button.
2. On the "General" tab, at the bottom click the "Reset dialogs" button.
Backing up your Quick Bar
There are two ways to do this,
Screenshots: Take screenshots of the items, and later restore them by hand.
RegEdit: Use the windows Registry editor to export the relevant data, and later restore by clicking the exported ".reg" file.
1. Right click the Ribbon or Quick Bar, and choose "Customize Quick Access Toolbar..."
2. Use Alt + Printscreen to capture the items in the list. (You may need to scroll.)
3. Paste or save the resulting image(s) somewhere handy.
4. Do the steps in the "Fixing glitched dialogs" section above, and then restore your customizations by recreating them.
Important! Do NOT use this method unless you're comfortable editing the windows registry.
Messing up the registry by accident can prevent your computer from booting.
1: Open RegEdit, and navigate to:
2: Right click the "BCGWorkspace" folder icon, choose "Export", and save the .reg file to your desktop.
3: Do the steps in the "Fixing glitched dialogs" section above, and then restore your customizations by double-clicking the exported .reg file.
Both the Condition and Action object browser windows suddenly became glitched.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
Image & Description
The browser area extends to the window-top, under the Info and Search elements.
The bottom buttons are displaced upwards off the bottom panel area, and don't respond to clicks.
I can't think of anything I've changed or done that would cause this.
I couldn't find anyone else with this issue though, so it seems like it's probably something weird on my end.
I'm at a loss for what's going on, and C2 is currently not really usable in this state.
It doesn't seem to affect any other windows in C2, nor any other windows in any other program.
Hadn't updated C2, or graphics drivers.
Hadn't updated windows as far as I know.
I've tried installing an older version of C2 that worked, but the problem persisted.
Tried re-installing the current version of C2, but no luck.
Both installs applied the built-in uninstall step of the installer, but I don't know how extensive that uninstall job is or what it affects.
Perhaps there are elements I could manually uninstall that would resolve this.
