Lost Materials window....
on Aug 8, 2006 at 10:44:53 pm

I was using 2 monitors, now just one and when I start Max I cannot see the Materials panel...is there a reset hotkey or something to reset it to my single monitor?

Thanks in advance!

I had the same problem b4 and didn't find any hotkey so I had to hook up the 2nd monitor again. Then, on the display settings, where you arrange the position of the monitors, I putted the 2nd monitor everywhere around the 1st monitor (right, top-right, top, top-left, etc...). That took me a while but eventualy, I found my materials window on the far left of my main monitor.

It's there somewhere, just go get it!

Easy solution...
1. Press "M" to bring up your Materials window (you can't see it, but you've made it active by pressing "M").
2. Press Alt+Space
3. Press Down Arrow once, then Enter
4. If your 2nd monitor was on the left, hold down the right arrow key for a few seconds. If your 2nd monitor was on the right, hold down the left arrow key for a few seconds. The Materials window will show up in a few seconds.

This trick works in any Windows application window...

Failing that I think you can reset the UI, just load in the default UI. Just make sure you save your keyboard config if you use a custom one.
