When i close solidworks and open a similiar assembly it still has the closed assembly in the background what can i do to fix this? 2018
Please explain "it still has the closed assembly in the background". Do you mean you can still the Assembly on your monitor?
No when i close an Assembly but leave solid works open then open another assembly it still has the old assembly open in memory because when i close solidworks completly it ask to save the first assembly i already closed out first. Does this makes sense?
is that first assembly in a drawing you still have open?
It makes sense. When you close the first assembly you aren't immediately getting a message asking if you want to save it?
I went to Options then External references then selected none on Load referenced documents and the issue went away. Now when i close an assembly it doesn't ask me to save a previously opened and closed assembly. Thanks for your comments.
Are you closing Solidworks entirely? Or are you just closing the assembly?
Make sure that you completely close Solidworks and wait a few seconds before re-opening.
If that isn't working, then try a reboot, although I can't imagine that it would need to be that drastic.
Close SW and kill the SW process
To me Jeremy's question makes the most sense. Do you have an assembly or drawing open where your first assembly is a subassembly within it?
right - drawing or assembly. I keep forgetting sub-assemblies (hardly ever use them here ).
