We really have to find a way to convince SOLIDWORKS developers to add an option for getting all the options for opening a large assembly directly from the PDM vault.
This is such a huge game changer for 90% of my customers!!! They could work 10 times faster with large assemblies if such a trivial change would be made to the PDM functionality.
Also please vote on this SPR: SPR# 712870: “Ability to open SOLIDWORKS files in Large Design Review Mode”
I know that the description is misleading, since there is no reference to PDM, but the SOLIDWORKS technicians told me that this is the correct ER.
