How about this wasted space?
Ift may have to do with Workgroup PDM. Turn off that add-in and see if it makes a difference.
FYI....SW2010SP5.0 XP 32 bit OS
Interesting. I do not have that same wasted space (well, a little bit, but nothing like you have). SW 2011 SP2
I actually think it has more to do with your version of Windows than it does SolidWorks.
As for how to fix it, I have no idea.
I am also using Win XP 32bit.
I was looking at that exact thing when I received your reply. Thanks a bunch!
Turn off WPDM and reclaim wasted space ... Not exactly a good slogan.
Or switch to Win 7. With Win 7 you do not have access to Workgroup vault in the file open dialog.
In win7 is there a way to get the neat little thumbnail preview to show up? All I can get is a gargantuan preview that takes up half of the file/open window. I want mine to go back to the way is shows in Charles' snapshot.
Yeah, i know how to get rid of it completely, but I still want a preview, just smaller. The one in winxp took up about a 2x3" area on the screen. You can see it in the screenshot that Charles posted.
Well, as usual I was just missing something simple.....
Just drag the little barely visible line to expand/contract the preview area.
Yes, SW just grabs the Open and Save As dialogs from Windows
