Looking for insight to a big problem... Every time text is entered into a BOM cell, it disappears when exiting that cell.
It is a known issue. I have sent this on to my VAR but have not been assigned a SPR yet. There have been a few other people who have noticed this as well. It worked in 2016 but not now.
Reviving this topic, I'm regularly having this problem. Rebuilding the model does not work, I have gone through every menu that I can find.
We had this issue a while back. Our issue was with the REV block and not the BOM however...Same characteristics...not keeping change
Our issue was our template files were old 2008 files that we just re-saved every year.
Our fix was to take a copy of the one that came with the current SolidWorks we had at the time which was 2016, and re-customize the REV block to be the same as the old one.
Solved our issue...maybe work for you
Crusty Old Template File Gotcha strikes again!
Thanks for the reply! I thought this might have been the problem, since I was modifying a drawing that used a template from 2012. However, I rebuilt the drawing in a SW2017 template, and it was still having the issue. Additionally, my coworker seems to not have this problem on the same drawing.
Something tells me that its something silly that I'm doing wrong, but I have to move on so I just placed a text box over the cell I feel dirty now
