CoppeliaSim 4.2.0 on Ubuntu 18.04 - Toolbar buttons missing?

Post by TPH »

Dear all,
I have recently transitioned from CoppeliaSim 4.0.0 to 4.2.0 on Ubuntu 18.04. Now, several buttons on the left vertical Toolbar are missing (e.g. Collections, Path edit mode, etc.).
Is this intended and are there new ways to access these functionalities? Or is this likely the result of a compatibility issue with my platform?
Btw: I made sure that I downloaded the correct file for Ubuntu 18.04!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Tom

Those functionalities have been deprecated.

It should be written somewhere in the manual, maybe in the release notes.

Hello Tom,

as fferri mentioned, those functionalities have been deprecated. e.g. collections now have to be dynamically created (i.e. via code), and path objects are now generated with dummies and a customization script.
The old functionality is however still supported, for backward compatibility. If you really need to have access to the old dialogs (e.g. temporarily), you can still enabled them by setting

Code: Select all

showOldDlgs=true
in system/usrset.txt

Cheers

Thanks!
I guess what confused me was the fact that I looked at the inverse kinematics tutorial and the images there show screenshots with all the buttons on them, so I assumed hat these buttons should still exist in the new version.
It would be great if you could update these images!
Best,
Tom
