    DIAMETERS WILL NOT COME INTO PLAN VIEW SW2016 SP3

    John Koos

      1st of all this company waits until its broke before fixing anything so if it's not about SW2016 SP3 you're not helping me, sorry.

      Last night IT rebooted the EPDM server, this morning I cannot get diameters to come into the plan view on the drawing. I need diameters in the plan view in order to drag into the section views. Normally I use the"D" key to bring diameters into the plan view.

      things I have tried:

      - reboot the computer first thing every morning.

      - rebooted a second time when things didn't work.

      - reset solidworks settings using wizard.

      - rebooted again.

      - tried different drawing

      Any help on SW2016 SP3 with EPDM would be appreciated. I searched and did not find anything on this.

          UPDATE

          Suddenly it decided to start working again, why, who knows. In the cross section view of the bearing, in property manager-section view I unchecked "partial section". used the "D" key in the tree to pull in diameters from the model. Normally this does not work this way for me. Normally I have to drag the dimensions from the plan view into the cross section view and if they don't work then uncheck the box "partial section" and drag them into the section view.
