I am currently using SW 2016 x64 SP2.0. I sometimes find it necessary to alter a hole callout dimension when dealing with complex hole geometries. Normally this is fine. The dialogue comes up with the message...
"Manually altering a portion of the callout text may break that portion's link with the model. Do you want to continue?". I click yes, and check the box that tells the dialog not to bother me any longer.
This checkbox used to only apply to the current session, but is now a persistent setting. I could alter hole callout dimension text with no confirmation dialog, and in this respect Solidworks has been content. However, about two weeks ago I noticed that I can no longer manually change hole callout dimension text. It would simply revert back to the original value. I went into [System Options]->[Messages/Errors/Warnings]->[Dismissed messages] and checked to re-enable this dialog. Now when I go to change the callout text, the dialog pops up, I click yes, and the text in the [Dimension Text] field appears to change. Unfortunately, this dialog continues to pop up for every character I type no matter which option I select, and still will not change the value of the balloon in the drawing when I am finished. Is this a bug? Should I report it? Will anyone listen? Do I need to reinitialize / re-instal Solidworks? What is the meaning of any of this? Just kidding. Really I just want to know if anyone else has seen this behavior, and if so, what is the fix?
Thank you in advance for your time,
