FC becomes unusable after double-cicking on FEM elements while clip view is active

Post by uwestoehr »

I found a bug in FC 64-bit Version: 0.18.15711 (Git)

To reproduce:
- create a new document, there create a simple body, e.g. a block
- create a new simulation
- now use the menu View -> Clipping plane and clip e.g. along Z
important is that you keep the clipping dialog open!
- now go to the Model tab and double-click on "CalculiXccxTools"

result: you get correctly the message that there is a dialog active: Image

- so now go to the Tasks tab and close the clipping view

result: you still cannot do anything. No matter what FEM element you like to modify, meshes, constraints etc., every time you still get the error that a Task dialog is already open. But this is not the case.
Thus to be able to to something with FC, I have to close my document.

After long time fiddling around I just found a workaround: I can open a sketch, do nothing but close the sketch task dialog and eventually FC is working again also for FEM elements.

OK to report this as bug?
