When I do so, SW responds with the message "The sheet format could not be located". I then have to select it from the sheet format / properties box.
1. Look at your file locations setting for the Default Templates to see where your default drawing template is. Go there and open that template.
2. Save the sheet format into that location in case it's not already there.
3. Then open the properties box and in the sheet format browse box put in the path and name of that sheet format. Mine is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\SolidWorks\SolidWorks 2008\templates\temp_a.slddrt.
4. Then save the template.
The problem with "the sheet format could not be located" is no longer a problem.
Something else I am trying to sort out is the following:
When I try to add a sheet, the sheet properties dialog box comes up and I must then select the sheet format I want to use from the saved formats.
When my co-worker creates a new sheet, his system adds a sheet without bringing up the sheet properties dialog box. If he wants to use a different sheet format to the one which was loaded for sheet two, he then uses RMB and selects the properties option and changes the sheet format.
Do you know how I can set my systems to do the same?
Go to 'Tools > Options' then select 'Drawings' under System Options. Make sure the box next to 'Show sheet format dialog on add new sheet' is checked.
I new it had to be that easy just couldn't find that ellusive option. All along it was right there in front of me....
Funny how something can sometimes be staring you in the face and you just can't see it....
Thanks for the info. Everything worked fine until I upgraded service packs a few months ago.
