Playmaker Editor quit working after closing it.[SOLVED]
« on: November 30, 2017, 05:06:11 PM »
Playmaker edit menu was working, I undocked it to move to other screen and I accidentally closed it.  Now it wont open back up.

I have tried everything in this list and then some:

Playmaker menu is not available in the Unity Main Menu after importing Playmaker:

Have you installed Playmaker from the Welcome Screen.  YES
Click the main menu bar. It doesn't redraw after importing a package.
Check the Unity Console for errors. Any error (not just Playmaker errors) can stop editor extensions from compiling. Fix any errors you find in the Unity Console. Most of the time this is the problem. No errors
Sometimes Anti-Virus software can interfere with Unity imports. Try disabling your virus checker while importing. DISABLED
Close the Playmaker Editor when importing updates. E.g., Load a default window layout. TRIED THIS
Restart Unity. YES
Restart your computer. YES
Other things to try: NOTE: Backup your project first!!

Delete the project/Temp folder if it exists. YES
Delete the project/Library/ScriptAssemblies folder and restart.YES
Switch to another project, or make a new project, and reset the Layout to a default (e.g., Tall), then load the original project.YES
Google Drive and Dropbox folders can interfere with Unity Projects. Try moving your project out of these "special" folders. NOT USED
If all else fails, try re-downloading the Playmaker unitypackage, maybe it was corrupted on download. TRIED THIS

DELETED UNITY, ALL PROJECTS, ALL DOWNLOADS, VS STUDIO...REINSTALLED
TRIED UNITY 2017 1.2 and 2017.2.0f3
On Windows 10

Please someone assist me here.  This is frustrating.

Hi,
inside the folder : Playmaker/editor/install
Can you try to install the latest version from there?

Can you show a screenshot from unity (including all windows)

dj,
Thanks for the response.   Since you asked me to change take a screenshot, I figured my resolution is too high to for this so  I decided to change it from 3440x1440 to 2160x1200. 

Click apply...  freakin magic .  It appears on the other screen.  That is the weirdest bug ever.  After hours of deleting and reinstalling ...  this is my fix.

Thanks for the reply dj!!!!!

Hi,
So by lowering the resolution it just came back?

I will report it to Alex (PM Dev).
But i think it might be a unity issue not a Playmaker issue.

Anyway i am happy you got it to work, and thanks for sharing the solution. :)
