Hello Everyone,   Has anyone been able to successfully remove the <NUM_INST>X from the beginning of their standard hole callout?   I am trying to modify my calloutformat.txt file so that the "#X" is removed from the front of my hole callout.  I've seen some posts about modifying "NO-NUMBER-OF-INSTANCES" but I'm not seeing any changes there.  Can… (Show more)

I'm trying to populate a column on a bill of materials from the file properties entered in the drawing file.

My purpose for doing this is so that I… (Show more)

I admit coming from years of experience with AutoCruD before learning, adapting to, and adopting SWx. It is very infrequent that I seek archaic functionality in a better tool.

Click to view contentMy company is in between Solid Works and AutoCAD. Thus we use these symbols:   What is the best way to create these in solidworks drawings? I use sketches but they are hard to deal with and do not attach to the drawing views (dragging a view does not bring the sketch with it). What do you use for section callouts and detail callouts? I use… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi experts, I tried to find a solution but have not had much luck so maybe someone here can help me. I am using Solidworks 2014 and have designed a Table and created a drawing from the 3D model a while ago but with the same version of Solidworks I am using now. Later I had to add some Rud lugs (in red) from the library to the part (not… (Show more)
