Display floater cropped off in Max 2016
show user profile  Boing
I did a last minute upgrade to Windows 10 and decided to make the jump from Max 2012 up to 2016 but when I open the display floater it looks cropped at one side like this.

It should look like this

Anyone have any experience of this?

Weird, I have just been experiencing the same thing in Max 2016 win7 sp1 64, it happens to me on random floaters at random times.

I'm guessing it's linked to dotnet or some other dependency, I've tried repairing Max installation and dot net 4.5, but still happening for me.

I may be wrong about the dotnet thing...just a guess.

edit: Windows 10?...serves you right :p

Try grabbing a corner to resize or double click the title bar to dock the window.

I took a disk image of my old setup before jumping to 10 just in case but so far it's alright, it's got some nice little fixes over 7 and some wierd steps backwards.

This shouldn't bug me but it's like having a fly in the room, it's doing my head in. As long as others are getting it I won't waste time on a reinstall though.

5 year old script *use at own risk* http://www.scriptspot.com/3ds-max/scripts/reset-3ds-max-windows

Or use "ResizeEnable" or "AltMove" to hook into any window and force it to become resizeable:

Or ask Nik about Blender.

I still think it's a dot net issue, I can feel it in my bones.

Bone pain, tenderness, or achiness is a common problem, particularly among those who are middle-aged or older. As you age, your body undergoes many changes. Muscle size and bone density generally decrease as you become less active.

These conditions require immediate medical attention. If you have unexplained bone pain, do not ignore it. Make an appointment with your doctor to find out why.

I'd uninstall 3dsmax and re-install it fresh. The setup process might respond differently to Windows 10 drivers, hardware, registry settings and configure 3dsmax slightly different than if you carry across a copy of 3dsmax where the setup process was run in a previous version of Windows.

....or keep trying and download and install the latest 3dsmax service pack over the top hoping it will overwrite whatever is causing the problem.

I ran the windows resize script but it didn't work, I updated NET from 4.5 to 4.62 but still nothing. I installed Max on my laptop but it had the same issue, SP2 and EXT1 and 2 installed.

It doesn't seem to affect functionality so I may have to live with it.

Yup seems to be the case, in 2016 the icons also randomly disappear for me unless you mouse over them or minimise / maximise the UI, I've just got used to it, I never install a SP unless I really have to.

@FX

1. Go to the folder where you installed 3dsmax.
2. Copy "3dsmax.exe" and paste.
3. You will now have a "3dsmax - Copy.exe"
4. Double-click "3dsmax - Copy.exe" to run (or update the shortcut).

I can't believe I am even suggesting to try this. Does not make sense. If this works I'll eat my shoe.
