  • PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!(on knees begging!)

    Hi there
    The last three days I have tried to do a layout in SBM, & I have lost my grey pop up box that lets you select ,photos,embies,paper scrap,background,tiled background etc. If I drag & drop or click on an object it immediately goes to the page without givng me the choice of what I want it to do,so for eg, the background is small like a photo would be-is there something I have done that has removed it, or something I can click on to bring it back,I am totally lost without it.
    Also I tried to update thinking that might be the answer but I have the latest version,.
    I Hope someone can help me soon, as I am getting withdrawals,thanks in advance

    Just a suggestion

    I dont know what the problem might be but sometimes if I have a program that goes wacky I just go to add and remove programs and uninstall the program..reboot the computer and then install again..that usually puts everything back in place..maybe this will help..

      Thanks Jazziel for the suggestion, I will leave that for the last resort as I would have to get all the updates again & it would be a huge file which takes 4 ever to download so will put that off until I see if anyone has another suggestion, I do appreciate your input , thanks again.

        I'm wondering if by accident you clicked on the "don't ask me this anymore" box.

        Unfortunately, I've no idea how to bring it back Hopefully someone can answer this for you!

          Help still needed!-please.

          Thanks Jezza, I have no idea how I could have done that ,but not saying it wasnt possible,does anyone know if i put the cd content over the top of this version will it keep everything i have?(except maybe updates) ? or will it ask me to uninstall first, which I realy dont want to do *sigh* I miss my SBM!
          Or better still,.anyone know how to get the grey box back,please please!

            I think I may have your answer!

            On the top toolbar, click on "Edit", then click on "Preferences". A box will pop up and on the right half you will see a header called "Environment". If it doesn't say Environment, choose this word from the left half of the box.

            At the bottom right of the box, you will see a section called "Drag and Drop". There is a check box that says "Automatically create object (don't ask)". I think that in your situation you probably have a check in this box.

            UNCHECK THIS BOX. I think this will solve your problem.

            Good Luck!

                Kristy, & Steve
                I cannot thank you enough, thanks for the easy to follow instructions, I have my grey box back, (excited,can't you tell) ,I am goiing to write those instructions down & keep it safe, I have no idea how that happened, must have been one of my programs maybe that changed it, but without you I would never have looked there!
                Thanks to all who gave me your input, was truly appreciated!
                hugs, Karyn.
