Hi,   I'm using SolidWorks 2012 with dual screens and I like the "tile right" and "tile left" feature that comes with this new version, however I want to be able to assign each of these to a keyboard short cut (specifically "Shift+1" and "Shift+2"). I haven't been able to find the buttons in the "customize" dialog window. Am I just missing it, or… (Show more)

Click to view contentWe work with external references a lot and one thing that has been bugging us for a while is the fact that the ''Show external references'' button is never at the same damn place. Makes us have to look all over the menu. EVERY. SINGLE. .TIME.   P.S. I don't care that the selections change is different from one to another, I know that. A good… (Show more)

Our master projects can generally take up from 2 to 5 minutes to open. During that time, we generally do other things to either kill time or advance in the project. I was wondering if it was possible to have an audio alert when SolidWorks has finished loading a model entirely..? This way, I could work on things without having to look back and… (Show more)

I know this has been asked before several times on this forum but I have never seen a definitive list with descriptions. And new icons seem to show up all the time with no explanation (like a folder icon in the assembly feature tree that is half blue?). I know if you hunt and peck through the SolidWorks help files you can find descriptions for… (Show more)

Hi, I have these components in my assembly that are giving me this error message: "Cannot locate the file for the component to complete the operation." So I go to unsupress them and every time that I click unsupress, the file reloads and nothing happens. It gives me no option to select a file location as if the file could not be found.   So then… (Show more)

I use Solidworks 2018 SP5 and I moved from windows 7 to windows 10. I have a problem with the size of the dots and of the snaps. They are too small. Is it possible to enlarge them ?   Best regards Emanuele Florian

I guess it's time to consolidate my whining so I don't poison the forum Add your experience. Teach me how to use SolidWorks.   Hopefully I'll learn something and help other learn something. Also help SolidWorks to be more user friendly. And get SolidWorks to work like Inventor.

When I create a new dynamic connector and select which pins to show on the diagram it does not place the number (mark) of the pins I selected, but it renumbers all of them from 1 to whatever number of pins I selected. For example, I selected pins 81 through 85, I get 1 through 5 after placing the symbol on the drawing.   Is there a fix to this or… (Show more)

Click to view contentHow do I change the number of places shown in callout graphics? My document units are set to 2 places, yet these callout boxes will show 8 places.    I'm on SW 2018 SP5

I have had years of frustration trying to select lines in drawings (to add note/weld symbols etc). I can spend MINUTES! trying to select an edge and I feel like I need to hit a single pixel sometimes. I've played with different mouses, mouse pads, and mouse speed settings.  Working with higher screen resolutions only makes this worse.  I can't be… (Show more)
