using LV2016,  I see the option in the short cut menu, but can't seem to get it to apply to any event structures.

I was seeing similar issues. I have the "separate compiled code" flag checked in that VI. I'm wondering if there's a LabVIEW bug where it doesn't realize it needs to recompile for the newer version.

 

Some things that might help:

  • Uncheck the separate flag on the VIs and controls in the llb 
  • Try a mass recompile on the llb folder
  • Clear object cache

I think the plugins are loaded when you launch the development environment so you'll have to close out and reopen LabVIEW

There's a helper VI to avoid having to quit and restart. After you make an edit, open and run

resource\plugins\PopupMenus\support\Refresh Menus.vi
