The individual sketches I'm wanting to display are set to show, but the global setting appears to be set so that no sketches show. Can anyone tell me how to display my sketches? I've attached… (Show more)

Click to view contentHello,   This macro, once started, will display a dialog whenever a part is saved without a material being specified:   It does this by traversing the features and material, whether it's shown in the tree or not, is always before the Front plane. The macro finds the Front plane and examines the feature name prior to it. If this feature's… (Show more)

Click to view content  The square sketch on the picture is the source. The rounded square is the projected curve. Obviously, it's supposed to be projected on the top side of the cylinder, not on the bottom   What's the solution without "workarounds" ? I'm tired of working around this software's glitches   SolidWorks 2013
