Can I get rid of these? I thought I had, but maybe not, seems they are back. Everytime I go near a dim, not or just linger on the sheet I get these flyouts telling me the dim, view and drawing number. Thanks!!
They have been around as long as I can remember and that is since 2000.
They never bothered me. I found the dimension pallette way more agravating.
I don't know if there is a way to turn them off. I always found them useful.
Nice to know the code at times incase you ever need it for a formula.
I guess I just like the option of turning things off and on. Things that flyout at me and cover up other info just annoy me . I have a seizure disorder and all these little things are one more thing for my brain to process. I thought they were gone but maybe just b/c I was recently in Pro/E and got used to not having them.
How is Pro/E going for you?
Nice to chat with you again.
Oh, I can understand the flying out annoyance thing. I am sorry to hear about your disorder.
Can I offer a suggestion? If you have the problem of these flyouts because of congestion
what about larger views so your dimensions are more spaced out so maybe this would happen less?
Just a thought.
Pro-E? At my old job I got a lead on a position that was looking for people with Pro-E experience.
So while I had the opportunity at my old job they allowed me the last 1.5 weeks I was there to brush
up on my Pro-E skills. Well, that job never panned out and thank the Lord when I got home from my
last job there was a call from the place I am working now and they hired me. I was working within a week.
And I am using Solidworks again. God is good!!!
So, no more Pro-E...at least for now.
The disorder is minor, but enough to have visual things disturbing. I just have to some brain retraining. Thanks for the larger view ideas, but much of my work is for other people and the drawing size is often designated. I am sure I can get used ot once I know I must!
You must be relieved re: the ProE thing. I must say, it is tough going back and forth considering I was just getting a handle on WF5 and new to SW - talk about brain retrain! lol!;;;I
Not sure if I should start a new thread for this or not, but is it possible to keep dims from constantly snapping to others? I have snapping off but there is the Aligning and Inference lines. I like it for finishing a drawing but in the process I sometimes want to move things around & get them out of the way and they still line up with others. I have searched the help and properties to no avail. I am just so picky!!
For the times that you don't want a dim to snap into place, hold the Alt key. That temporarily disables the snap but then you can still use it other times.
Ah! Very helpful! thanks!
Sometimes we have to learn to live with our disorders. Mine...I am 50% deaf from a car accident.
Hard to hear at times and my hearing aids only help so much, but do help quite a bit.
Yes, I am relieved that I don't have to use Pro-E anymore, but it was fun to relive and
learn why I like Solidworks better.
Yes, If you hold down the alt key while dragging your dimensions or annotations it doesn't snap.
But another thing you might want to check out is under Tools>Options>System Option>Drawing
there is a selection called "Disable note/Dimension inference
Try that and see if it fixes it.
THAT is just what I was looking for - thanks!
I have a friend who is hard of hearing and she says the one good thing is that she sleeps great! I thought that was sort of funny.
Great, one less thing off of the list...right?
Yeah, I do sleep well at night. Sleep through alarms sometimes and a specially
great through thunder storms.
