missing basic ice compounds

Post by mattmos » 28 May 2018, 17:16

Bit of a strange one, some of my basic building block ice compounds are missing - anyone know how I could get them back, have a lot of plugin installs and don't really want to completely re-install if I can help it. Missing get data, switch context... that I know of so far.

Edit - soft 2015 sp2 r2, windows 10 pro

I have this happen occasionally, try hitting the refresh button in the toolbar on top of the compounds tree. If this didn't help, I'm out of ideas too.

I've been getting this too. In a strange way, it's comforting to know that it's a common affliction. It's easy enough to hit refresh so it's never bothered me too much. The concern is more a nagging doubt of 'is this the beginning of something more serious? ;)

built in obsolescence - they'll gradually remove ice nodes until you can't build a tree any longer ;)

Well, now that AI is the current cg trend I'm sure many problems will be blamed on errant behaviours from the likes of 'Marvin the paranoid algorithm' that decide that suicide is the only way forward! ;)
