When I place a simple flat pattern on drawing SW crashes.
Try this, when you have the drawing open and you go to insert - select multiple views first - like the top-front- side and "Then" select the flat pattern view ...
Same story tried that and no luck
Can you post pictures or the file??
there's a considerable lack of information given if you want help.
How complex is the part?
Have you tried restarting SolidWorks?
Have you rebooted your computer?
Any Add-ins in SWX?

Actually if you want to run SW RX it might help clean up any issues, Go to the windows start icon in the lower left, under all programs open the SW folder and look in tools to find SW RX. There are sections in there to run diagnostics and check the hardware. If all else fails you can record the issue and send it to your VAR to see if they can determine the problem.
I suppose that if the "Sheet Metal Bend Line Note File" is not located where it should be this could cause the problem. Sort of a shot in the dark but worth looking into.
I often get that error message with the note that it will use default note from the SW install. So I do not think that is the issue.
