Which option to select in Convert to Appearances dialog box

Question asked by Vishnu Kayarat on Feb 10, 2020

In the 'Convert to Appearances' dialog box that we see while opening an assembly/drawing, we are prompted to select 3 options:

Parts in this assembly, last saved in SOLIDWORKS 2007, contains PhotoWorks Materials and SOLIDWORKS Colors/Textures. These will be converted to apparances. It is recommended that you only convert and maintain one set of data to appearances.

Please determine which set of data to convert:

• Photoworks Materials only

• SOLIDWORKS Colors/Textures only

• Both - creates a unique display state for each representation


Could someone please mention the advantages and disadvantages of selecting one of the options over the other?
