Hi All,

I work in the User Experience group at SolidWorks, and at the moment I'm doing some research about save messages that pop up when closing SolidWorks.

You might have noticed that when saving or closing SolidWorks with multiple documents open (or one assembly, if you edited a number of parts), the system will sometimes show a number of messages asking you to save the various documents. If there are many of them, you end up clicking a lot of message boxes.

I'm looking into what (if anything) we might do about this. You might be thinking "just put them all in one dialog, dummy!" but it turns out that it's a little trickier than that.

Anyway, if you'd like to help with this, please let me know at mgibson at solidworks dot com. Total time commitment for this should be less than 1/2 hour.
