I've noticed that a couple of the default templates in my Rhino 5 install have been overwritten. They now open with geometry from other files I have been working on. Needless to say, this is kind of annoying. So two questions:
1) Is this a bug, if not how do I prevent this from happening?
2) How do I reset the default templates?
Hi Anders- I have no idea how this would happen to begin with, but to reset the default templates,you need to do two things:
1. With Rhino closed, delete the folders in the localization folder- in my case
2. In the Rhino installation folder, double-click on
C:\Program Files\Rhinoceros 5.0 Beta (64-bit)\Packages\localization (en-us).rhi
(your .rhi file name will correspond to the language, if not English)
Haha, it's a bit of a mystery alright.
If it helps this has happened on both my workstation and on my on my personal laptop (running a trial version of Rhino 4 with Rhino 5 in the latter case). So it's probably not a fluke. I wonder if no one else has experienced it. Anyhow, your tips for resetting the templates worked a charm. Thanks a bunch.
Since updating to the latest beta (Version 5.0 (5.1.20725.935, 25/07/2012)) my default templates have now completely disappeared. The steps described above do no longer work either. As far as I can tell the folder structure is now different and the "localization (en-us).rhi" file is no longer present.
Perhaps I should attempt a clean re-install?
I had the same issue.
I found the "localization (en-us).rhi" file at
and all is good.
Thanks for responding. Managed to locate and run the file. However it does not appear to work for me. Instead I get this message:
"This package is not compatible with the Rhino Installer Engine."
Performed a re-install, it did the trick.
You are correct - now I remember doing an un-install and fresh install.
