As far as true templates go, I like them in the vault if you are in a replicated environment -so everyone uses the same template. There is a current bug that the templates do need to be in your local cache so the SW interface will see them. The work around is easy enough I wouldn't let that deter you.
I was about to send out an inquiry on that exact topic. What is the work around? Thanks for the help.
The work around is to have the user choose a "Get Latest" on the folder that has the templates so they will be in the local cache.
Reminder, if you ever update these templates you need to have the users do another "Get Latest"
Is there a way to set a specific directory to always get the latest version?
I know it can be set globally for a group or user to always work with the latest version of all files in the DB, but I don't see a way to make it more specific.
I think it would be nice to set up a Templates directory that always uses the latest version so that users don't have to think about going in and get the latest before they start working. And the admin wouldn't have to send out notices every time a slight change is made to the templates.
If no one knows of a way to do this, then I'll send in an Enhancement Request.
One way to do this would be to set up a separate vault for templates only and set the users to work with the latest versions of those files, but I think that would double license usage.
Just wanted to thank you for this. We were having the same problem of templates (and formats) stored in the vault not showing up in the SW "New" dialog, and this was the post that solved it for me. Getting latest on our Templates and Formats folders lets the contents be visible to SolidWorks.
Thanks for helping a frustrated Admin sort things out.
I am having an issue where any change to the templates do not go thru to EPDM
EPDm turns the template extensions to .ctf, this is what is loaded when creating a new Sw document.
GLV does not work for me, it does not see the modified templates as new.
our EPDM Server has not been updated to SP5.0 yet it is still on SP3.0
Glad this post fix your issue Megan, I find out so much great info in this user forum
