I am testing with a big assembly of about 500-2000 parts and test
the effort it needs to edit the dimension in 2013, 2014 and 2005.
When comparing selecting dimension between 2013 and 2014, 2014
has become terrible difficult to select. It seems to be a random place
where you need to pick before it will be selected.
In 2013 you could just select the text but in SW2014 depending on
the dimension you need to pick at random places before it will be selected.
Videocard and drivers are oke.
When dimension flat to screen is not set, the problem does not occur
in SW2014. In SW2013 there is no problem with either setting.
I already sent this problem a couple of weeks ago to my VAR but they
did not react.
It is very dissapointing to see regressions in the most used commands.
I can understand bugs occur with new features but this is just
Does anybody else see this problem? Does it already have a SPR?
It is serious enough to stop using SW2014 for us especially because
dynamic highlighting does not work in large assembly mode since SW2005
which makes editing dimensions about 5 times slower because of all
the misclicks in bigger assemblies in SW2014.
In SW2005 you could configure dynamic highlighting to be on or off
in large assembly mode and it worked great, we always had dynamic
highlight on in large assembly and it works very fast and responsive
and we almost never have misclicks.
SW2014 is terrible slow, tedious, inefficient and causes huge amounts
of misclicks while editing dimensions. Comparing to SW 10 years ago even
with hardware that is much faster now it is a hard to believe why it
has to be this worse and why it keeps getting worse.
SW2014 rebuilding and the the time to edit a part in bigger assemblies
is better than 2013 but that doesn't make up for all the misclicks and
difficult editing of dimensions.
It should be an eye opener if somebody at SW just opens the same big assembly
in SW2005 and 2014, edit 10 dimensions make 10 in context relations and
do 10 measurements in the assembly and write down the time and mouseclicks
you need in both versions. Try to do this as fast as you can and find how much
more time, misclicks and precise mousemovements and concentration
SW2014 needs when compared to SW2005.
Have large assembly mode on in SW2014 and 2005 and dynamic highlight on in
SW2005 in large assembly mode in this test.
Dynamic highlight is not supported somewhere after 2005 in large assembly mode.
