Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

This seems to be a strange request, but has anyone experienced not being able to add pred & succ to an activity via the detail box?

Try installing the latest patch. Usually it helps. 
There are several known bugs including invisible relationships buttons that you just described in version 16.2. For me resizing the buttom layout would do the trick.

I experienced this when switching my laptop from having one monitor to two monitors back to one.....  It seems that when I moved P6 to the new monitor, sometimes the ancilary windows move or I moved them to the new monitor.  When I then went back to just one monitor (just my laptop monitor),  the detail windows apparently appeared on the added monitor and were just sitting there, waiting for me to respond.  I now have a backup spare monitor that I'll plug in to find the detail windows and move them back.  I also have tried lately to move all windows back to my laptop monitor before I shut down....  See if this helps!
