Maxim,.. this has been a pita since.. well, a long time... and it's not just display states, it includes solid bodies and surface bodies which are not displaying!?..
Maybe, a new rebuild option, similar to a ctrl-q... like a ctrl/alt-q which could rebuild, repaint all configs and display states!?
I hear ya.. it's VERY FRUSTRATING... and, I don't have a solution.. maybe SOLIDWORKS CORP... can help.. you know, the PEOPLE WHO WRITE THE CODE FOR THIS PROGRAM???
I feel your pain. The same problem is rampant when working with multi body sheetmetals. I work with 2013 and you are saying 2015 still has the this issue. Well be patient and wait for Solidworks banner statement "we are implementing based on the continued feedback from users...." and then wait some more....until you finally give up.
The moral of the story is, take matters in your own hands and find a workaround (if there is any) or simply don't use it. If you are a thrill seeker, there is simply no better feeling than working with random software functionality under tight dead lines.
Thank you all for your recommendations and your own accounts of SW's problems. Nice to know that one is not crazy in his implementation of a workflow and expectations. Like you are saying, the problems don't really go away with new releases, so a workaround (usually many steps backward) has to be adopted. In my opinion, the quality of the current software is mediocre.
yep.. it's 3am... and you are about the finish the design for the 8am presentation,.. and WTF?.. randomly,.. surface bodies you were able to see 5 minutes ago are hidden.. and you can't quite select them?!?
...you become light headed,.. then blackout,.. and wake up at 7:59am with clumps of hair in each hand...
