Why does Save All fail to save all?

Question asked by Greg Welch on Nov 3, 2020

It frequently happens that I'll have eight or nine drawings open to make changes.  After I've made the changes, I'll click "Save All", which SolidWorks executes properly.  I then proceed to close the drawings one by one.  After closing about three drawings, SolidWorks starts asking if I want to save the drawings before closing them.  After this point, Save All doesn't work any more, and I have to save each drawing one at a time when I close them.  The questions are A) why does Save All quit working, and B) why does SolidWorks decide that drawings I just saved need to be saved again?

 

To be clear, this doesn't happen with just drawings.  It can happen with any grouping of files.
