I have been working on PCB design with SIwave and I have a recurring problem where suddenly the circuit editing tools get disabled and I can't figure out how to re-enable them. When I reload the model they'll work a while and then get disabled again at some point.
Here's an screenshot of the top ribbon with the Circuit Elements and Draw Geometry greyed out:May 31, 2022 at 6:18 pmPraneethAnsys Employee
Please provide more information about your issue to help us serve you better.
May I know if this happens for every design or any particular design?
All the very best Praneeth.

I have the same issue. I am not able to place circuit elements or draw geometry in any of my SIwave files. I am using 2022R2 version of SIwave thou.
Did you find a fix for this issue?January 10, 2023 at 9:07 amAnttiPSubscriber
Yes, you need to have the Top-Down View enabled form the View ribbon. If you rotate the PCB even half a degree those tools are greyed out and you can't use them.
