    Import/open model from PDM - folder display BUG?

    Wojciech Paterski

      Is it just me or do others have the same problem, we work with PDM Enterprise, and if I go to import/open anything from MY LOCAL pdm folder, I always get this style of folder preview:

      doesn't matter if I select, tiles, details, list  etc. it always displays small icons like that.

       

      But if I go to any other folder that is NOT PDM, then display style is changing as selected.

      Example:

       

      Is there settings somewhere or is his a BUG?

          I'm pretty sure this is just the nature of having PDM Enterprise installed, which adds a Windows Explorer extension.  ie If you just browse into a PDM folder in Windows Explorer, I believe it will display differently...  Or go to File Open dialog from some other MS applications (notepad or paint?)...

           

          I think you can disable the PDM Enterprise explorer extension, but then I'm not sure how off the top of my head and this might also impact some desired behaviors you use in SolidWorks...
