Issue Details

I am trying to add controls and sub-VIs to my main VI, but when I click on them and attempt to drag and drop them, the icons are missing. This happens when using quick drop or right-click, select. This was working properly before but now this issue has suddenly arisen.


This behavior can occur when running TeamViewer in the background of LabVIEW. Either quit TeamViewer, or follow these steps to disable QuickConnect on TeamViewer to use LabVIEW and TeamViewer simultaneously:

1. Open TeamViewer and click on the button with arrows (next to the close and minimize/maximize buttons)

2. Select Disable this feature
3. Select Disable TeamViewer QuickConnect button
