      can't change a dim by using + or - keys in 2013

       

      Message was edited by: Jeff Burgess Let me give you an example: in SW 2010 if I had a dim that was 22.5 and I needed to change it by .1875, I could click behind the dim in the dim box and put -.1875 and get the dim of 22.3125. In SW 2013 I can't do that and I didn't know if this was a setting issue or if this is not available now in SW 2013. Thanks Jeff

          This is definitely an error and not just a lack of functionality, I wonder if solidworks having issues using VBA could cause this as it's given me issues with equations in the past, I'd suggest trying the fix below.

           

          "

          1) Go to windows ‘Start’ > type cmd

          2) RMB on ‘cmd.exe’ > select ‘Run as administrator’

          3) In windows explorer Navigate to <SW installation folder>, (where sldworks.exe is contained)

          4) Drag and drop ‘sldworks.exe’ in command prompt and type” /regserver”. Typically the command would look like "C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp 2015\SOLIDWORKS\sldworks.exe" /regserver

          5) Press ‘Enter’ > this will register ‘sldworks.exe’

          6) Reconfirm behaviour."
