Connection Progress - Not Showing though dropdown in canvas option is set to "show"

Meteoroid

Hi, 

 

Cant really figure out what is going on. 

running a workflow, canvas sittings -> connection progress = "Show" but no boxes in the workflow at all. 

 

Have googled this issue, and searched the community for a solution. but without any luck.

Can anyone guide me, on what is wrong?

Hi @ThomasLEI 

 

I think I've noticed before that if the tools are too close together the connection progress will not show. Have you tried spacing the tools more?

Hi @jamielaird

 

Just tried now, it doesn't make any difference.

Hi @ThomasLEI 

 

I've noticed this before as well.  What's generally worked in the past is to change to one of the other options, run the workflow and change back.

hi @danilang

 

I have already tried this. not sure what happened. 

I have build a lot of workflows, at one stage it was gone. 

 

cant seem to get this working again, quite annoying.

A shot in the dark here, but could you be running low on available RAM.  Maybe the connection progress is only visible if there are enough resources to display it.

Could be a possible solution, but only 42% is used. and data set only contains 10 k lines.

Could you check your global settings under Options > User Settings > Edit User Settings > Canvas

 

I'm wondering whether there's some kind of a conflict there.

Thanks for your post.

 

I have checked this some times, tried to change it back and forth. 

nothing seems to work.
