Focus on Inventor only.

Post by EGO » Fri Aug 02, 2019 2:36 am

On my previous system (Win7+space_pilot+intentor14) I was able to control Inventor regardless of what program was in focus. I could be working on a word document or and still be able to spin my inventor model without switching to inventor.

I am not able to do this om my new system (win10+spacemousepro+inventor2018). Now I will have to click over to inventor to spin the model, and then click over til word to continue writing my document.

Is it possible to achieve the behaviour from my old system?

open the file Inventor.XML that you find in your folder %APPDATA%\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\Cfg. There you can add:

Code: Select all

While Inventor is running, the driver will not switch away.

When Inventor is not running, the driver switches as usual.

This is only useful if you are running one app with that Grab flag at a time.
