when i hit the component icon the component pop up does not pop up
It is not entirely clear which icon you are thinking of? There is a Make Component icon and Dynamic Components related icons… or maybe some Extensions you use?
It is possible that the “popup” in question is off-screen. Have you had a second monitor attached to your computer recently?
Can you please elaborate! (screenshot, more details)
it is the Make Component icon and Make Component on the pull down. I do have a second monitor and I checked that. I made sure i had nothing else up on either screens.
I can Make Groups but not Components
Try to follow this guide exactly directly after clicked on the
Make Component icon
- Hold down the ALT key. Hit SPACEBAR.
- Release ALT key
- Hit M (Move).
- Hit one of ← ↑ → ↓ arrow keys
- Move your mouse around (without pressing any mouse key) until you see the missing window.
- Press left mouse button on the desired place
(Note: assuming you have English windows otherwise you may need to replace “M” with a localized letter, e.g. “L” in French)
