Click to view contentI was wondering if it's possible to forcefully override the Template's Document Properties as a default? I need horizontal text on Fillets as default, no matter which template is loaded.   Thanks!

Click to view contentHi. Here it is my problem: I have a custom drawing template with custom sheet format. Every time I start a new drawing, the documents properties appear as bellow. Every time I change/reload the sheet format, two "new" properties appear, SWFormatSize and Révision (in french). When I've started here everything was in french. I've tried since then… (Show more)

I have used the custom properties to build a set of changeable properties, but on some sheets I need the value of the property to be different i.e the DWG number.   At the moment the change of properties is applied… (Show more)

Hello all, im working with dual dimensions and am trying to add a hole callout to a counterbore.  I need the callout to read with the secondary units to have 4, 3, and 2 place precision, respectively.  Right now, if I change the precision on any of the parts they all change.  See attached.  Is there any fix to this?  Thanks in advance!!

Refer to my attached PDF file. The title block border lines & the balloon arrows looked like clear, solid lines. But the view of the assembly is too light. I saved the solidworks drawing as a PDF . How do I fix this?

Click to view content1. Is it possible to change the size of the hitbox for dragging Dimension Lines?   The small blue box top left in the image below has a "hit box" that's only a couple of pixels wide/high. Where can I change (system change preferably) the size of this so it's easier to target using the mouse pointer (for moving/dragging)? Over time, not having to… (Show more)
