So, we have this discussion about impressive SW tricks:
Let's make another thread to capture the little things your co-workers/clients/customers do with SOLIDWORKS that bring thoughts of violence. Extra points if there's nothing technically wrong (see item 2 below) with what they've done but if you were in charge of the universe it would earn them a one-way trip into another dimension.

- Dimensions to hole centers on drawings. Call me old-school, but the dimensions go to the center marks not the hole center:
