Feature tree conventions

Discussion created by Kevin De Smet on Oct 17, 2010

The differences between the core Solidworks application and Solidworks Simulation are remarked.

 

Simulation

  • You can doubleclick on a feature in the tree and it edits that feature
  • There are no leftclick pop-up pallets
  • If you rightclick it shows the menu without the need to depress the mouse button which makes it fast and snappy

 

I don't think I hate the pop-up pallets but not even being able to simply doubleclick on a feature to edit it in core Solidworks is just weird to me, why force people into using the pop-up?

 

Also rightclicking without needing to depress the mouse button before the menu appears may be anti-windows convention but I much prefer it as it feels snappy and fast.
