I've switched to solidworks from Inventor about two years ago and I'm still not used to this. It drives me insane. I do lots of navigating through the tree. I'll select a feature from the tree, click mate and want to find the other feature through the tree. Problem is when i click mate, the dialog box opens in the tree area as everyone is probably aware, and the tree gets put into the modeling window. No surprise here. But the annoying bit is that I lose my spot in the tree, now i need to go looking for the damn feature again through the tree. Is there a way i can configure SW to give me a window pop up when i select a function and leave my tree as is? if not, can i configure it so that when i do click on a function, it puts my tree on the modeling window but in the same location i left off at?
