Solvespace Property Browser not visible (by Ritvik)
I have a Windows 7 system (64 bit)

Solvespace version: 3.0~bcb8cd2c

I ran this latest version of solvespace a couple of times & it worked fine. I kept moving around the graphic windows & property browser window then.

Now, when I open solvespace, I can see the graphical window but not the property browser window. What I believe is happening is that the property browser window has moved out of bounds of the viewable desktop space.

I know that the property browser window exists because, when I press Tab on the graphical window, I can see the focus being removed from the graphical window.

I tried to press Alt+space to access the window menu & move the property browser window, but doing this brings up the window menu on the graphical window only & not the property browser window.

I tried restarting solvespace & the problem still persists.

Maybe try deleting everything in Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SolveSpace and restarting?

Thanks Tom, that worked.

For anyone unclear of the solution, here's the detailed procedure.

1. Ensure Solvespace is closed
2. Open Run (Win+R)
3. Type "regedit" & press Enter
4. In the left Pane, navigate to "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SolveSpace" & click on the folder named "SolveSpace"
5. Now, in the right pane, under the "Name" column, find all entries starting with "TextWindow" or "TextWind" & delete them by right clicking on them.
6. Now start Solvespace.

FYI I ran into the same problem. I solved it by toggling the Property Browser window via View->Show Property Browser to give it focus and then pressing the Windows key+arrow key left or right to move the window back on screen.
