When I create a part in context of an assembly, where does Solidworks pull the part template from? It does not appear to use my standard one and I have directed it too in the Options dialog.
it will use your default part template specified here:
unless you have that last option selected (propt user...)
That is the way I also understood it to work.
I create derived parts by splitting part files all of the time. I have never been able to get SW to use the template I have specified or prompt me to specicfy one.
It would be a great time saver if someone could explain how to get this to work correctly.
don't know why it doesn't work for you - that is exactly how we use it.
Do you also have the File Locations set to match?
Sure enough, that fixed it.
Thank you for your help.
