Technical  
  Comments:

 

DS SolidWorks does not guarantee that this SPR fix will be available in the indicated future release of the
product since at this time the SPR fix has not completed QA procedures that incorporate all SPR fixes and
enhancements into a new version of our product.

This issue is not yet fixed in SW2018 SP2.0

But its status is closed (implemented) fixed in 2014 SP05.

But that is untrue.

The issue is discussed here: Hole Wizard slot length from center to center?

The slot feature in the hole wizard is still almost useless to us on the latest version.

I wonder if this SPR stuff actually has any meaning, and who is responsible for publishing the fiction that is this SPR status.

Perhaps in protest users could post similar alternative truth type SPR status listings on this thread?
