I'm using 2010 sp1.0 and when I create a cosmetic thread on a shaft when I get to the drawing and right click on the cosmetic thread the option Insert Callout is no longer there. How do you insert a callout now on a cosmetic thread?
Check out this thread. https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/29444
Be sure to look at the video I posted after you have read all the messages in the post. I think this applies to what you are seeing.
Also check if you are pathed to the new calloutformat.txt file in SW2010 under Options > System Options > File Locations > Hole Callout Format File
You can use annotations in the drawing to add the call out.
OR if you already specified the call out at the part level, then in the model items in the drawing, select the thread call out.
Hole callout will not select the cosmetic thread inserted into the part in my drawing.
I used Standard: Ansi Inch and that greys out the Thread Callout window. If I select None and insert a thread callout the result is the same, when you mouse over the cosmetic thread in the drawing it shows up but does not allow you to insert a Hole Callout.
Thanks for the info. Here is what I found. The Hole Callout Format File is pointing to C:\Program Files/SolidWorks Corp\Solidworks\lang\english. However I have a second folder for some reason named C:\Program Files/SolidWorks (2) Corp\Solidworks\lang\english. Also there are a few other folders with ... (2). I assume these are the newer folders but have no way of knowing at this moment.
My thought at the moment is to remove the (what I think is older) folders and remove the (2) from the newer folders.
SW did not like that plan. It came up with "Windows is installing SW2010..." so I bailed on that.
When I pointed the Hole Callout Format File to the C:\Program Files/SolidWorks (2) Corp\Solidworks\lang\english folder now Insert Callout shows up on the right mouse menu... I wonder what else is honked up?
How did you do your upgrade to SW2010? Was it a clean install?
Here is a Document that should help you out when installing new versions of SolidWorks.
I just stuck the CD in and followed the bouncing ball. Looks like my not uninstalling 2009 honked things up you would think that the install would warn you of that or if it did I ignored it I guess. I guess that when I have time I need to uninstall both 2009 and 2010 after reading that link then install 2010 again.
