I'm really upset about using SW electrical. What I'm trying to do is really no rocket science, but it seems to be impossible to do the easiest things, or maybe I'm just to stupid.


1. I want to draw a wire from one connection point to another, but even with the object-catch on and grid catch off the wiring tool does not recognise the connection point, sometimes. Sometimes it does, if I delete and insert the same symbol again.

Is this a bug or a feature?


2. When I wired two symbols and I want to move one symbol, the wires does not along with the symbol they are connected to, but stay in place. How can I move the wires together with the symbol?


3. When I want to select a wire, it only selects a part of the wire, but not the complete wire. How do I select the complete wire?


4. Sometimes the grid and catch settings resets by themselves. Why?


I'm using Solidworks Electrical 2018.0.1 Build 7, Professional


Thank u guys in advance.
