No issue with installation.
Now to start the bug checking. wish me luck !
I have two problems. They seem related. Tried repair, no luck. Toolbar issues.
The toolbar circled below is there for every tab! It should be (and was before update) where the arrow points to.
The first issue was present in the early visibility release. Apparently it's still there. If everyone is seeing this behavior, then I weep for the state of the SOLIDWORKS user experience testing group.
I do not see the second issue. My toolbar is where I expect it:
This was from the EV release.
I had the same Menu issue after installing SP3. It can be resolved when you start the customizing dialog for the command manager and change the option. Sry - couldn‘t name exactly because I have no SWX running on my iPad...
Your second issue is controlled by an option:
Yep, had the issue in the EV. Made a RX with screengrab and all. Got the tip to reset registry..... Figured out myself that only the UI could be removed without much hassle for me. SP3 came out uncorrected so I see.... What is the EV program for I ask myself then.....
For crying out loud.....why would a service pack toggle that?
Is that a new option that was added? I'm still on SP1 but don't see it on mine. Anyways, interesting that was added.
For the first issue you shared (toolbars not present), what graphics card do you have? I have a user that is having this issue, but if we resize the window, the session of SOLIDWORKS appears as intended. But the user has a GeForce 210 card which isn't supported.
..I read that as.... "Show Me the Menu Bar" (that is,..show me the money!)
Nvidia Quadro K4200. Apparently it's not certified either. Although, I believe it was when we first got our HP Z440 workstations 4 years ago.
I use a certified Quadro P4200 and SW showed the same issue in EV, after removing the UI folder in the registry settings of SW everything was OK in EV. Problem has not returned upon upgrade to SP3 from EV. Now everything is working as intended as far as I can see.
..yep, same behavior!
Can you explain the process of "removing the UI folder in the registry settings of SW"?
Ronald van Til and Robert Tupa,
Just to clarify, just because your video card isn't listed and you can't download a driver from SW, doesn't mean your card isn't supported. This is what the SW hardware support guy with SW has to say on the matter:

Fair point on the older systems but I am not convinced there is any value in doing this. What value does it provide? I think it sends the wrong message for customers to download drivers from years ago, we want you to use the latest supported driver from the vendor.
That's from this thread Very much fewer certified compatible graphics cards!? if you want to get the context.
..oh boy, my first SP3.0 crash!... so much fun.
..what happened,.... I was wanting to open a sldprt and scrolling through a folder with sldprts.
..what was different or what I've never seen before,.. the error message was independent ... that is, I could shutdown SW and the error message was still running for ~30 seconds... and then, the send dialog displayed?
..btw, for me, the easy way to show the "lost" menu is to double click top SW window bar which slightly minimizes the window ... and presto magic.. it reappears!?
Well that's a new one. I haven't seen that one happen yet.
Although I just crashed when creating a plane coincident to a surface.
But I didn't even get a crash error message. Solidworks just closed without a warning.
What is the obsession with changing the UI elements on a service pack? SP3 changed icons which seems like a waste of time with all of the bugs that need to be fixed.
They also removed some of the icons/functions from the quick access menu that I use frequently. How does one add these back?
You can right click anywhere in the quick access toolbar, select "Customize" from the dropdown menu, click the "Commands" tab in the window that pops up and drag any icon you want into the quick access toolbar just like the other toolbars.
Thanks for the suggestion, Tyler.
I had tried this originally before posting and gotten an inactive "Customize" menu selection . The detail I had forgotten was to open a model before attempting to customize the toolbar. It has been a long time since my last toolbar customization.
Thanks again for jogging my memory.
Hi guys! A month has passed since the release. Didn’t anyone find any significant bugs? Good argument to install SP3.0
Never assume there is an absence of bugs by an absence of commotion on the forums. What can be a huge problem for you may be a minor annoyance for others. That's why I advise people to test the software before rolling it out.
Jim Steinmeyer can tell you all about a worst case scenario where he lost a bunch of time and resources.
I'd skip this one for now. It crashes consistently for me after creating 840 files with a macro. The memory it takes keeps on growing until SolidWorks crashes. I don't see this behavior with other versions.
That and the menu, which is mostly annoying.
