Click to view contentHas anyone noticed in 2020 SP1 that the lines are missing from tables such as the parts list & hole table. They were fine with SP1 EV but now they're missing. Did they add a setting to hide & show this & defaulted to keep them off? Well answered my own question. For whatever reason now in SP1 they have the BORDER in the table property tab all set… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi all,   Just a quick one, I have a part which has 100+ configurations, I have a separate drawing file for each configuration as a sort of catalog for customers.   I have had a hole on the part, change to a slot but rather than editing the extrude cut, a new one was created so the dimension isn't referencing to that feature.. Is there a simple… (Show more)

I am trying to link the Item No. (Balloon number) to a cell in a General Table. Can this be done? I have linked other properties (e.g. Description, Vendor, Vendor P/N, ect..) into other cells in my table but I am unable to figure out how to add the BOM item number (balloon number) to a particular cell.

The title says it all... I upgraded to 2020 and the company logo appears huge, reversed, and upside down on the first drawing sheet to appear.   Additionally, all the text is missing from everything, balloons, dimensions, title block.... everything.... argh!!!

This is another post from the "Missing 5% functionality that makes users avoid this tool" novella.   Markups have been requested by users for a long time. At many companies I work with, the checkers have tons of paper in front of them and a red pen. They manually redline everything and then send the sheets back to the SW users.   There is not an… (Show more)

Click to view contentWhy is it that one drawing will print monochrome and another will print in color even though they are using the same printer, same print style, and same template? This has been driving me and my coworkers nuts! I've attached screenshots of the print screen for template (image 1), print screen for drawing using said template (image 2), additional… (Show more)

I want to add a sheet in a multi-page drawing, but I don't want to do it by inserting sheet format. It would be great if I could use what I have created as my extra sheet Drawing Template. The reason for this is that I want sheet 2...n to use it's own custom property callouts from the property tab builder pane, and not the ones that were inherent… (Show more)

Click to view contentI'm trying to connect a balloon to an item number of a different configuration in the BOM, however I do not have that configuration showing on the drawing. Is there a way to connect that balloon to the desired item number?   Item 2 and 3 are the same part just different configurations of it.
