    Section View labels (What's wrong with them?)

    Matthew Lorono

      In a previous posting on these forums, some have suggested that there are issues with how the Section View label works.  I'm interested in hearing about issues with Section View labels that you have been encountering in SolidWorks 2011 or 2012.

       

      For example, if you add text to the same line as the view scale ("SCALE 1:2; 2X"), then change the scale to the same scale as the sheet (not "Sheet Scale" option) and back to 1:2, you may end up with the appearance of multiple "2X" strings, and possible multiple outdated "SCALE" lines as well if you continue to change the scale back and forth.

       

      What other strange behavior does the Section View label exhibit? (Please test out any examples on SolidWorks 2011 or 2012 prior to posting to confirm these are current issues, as there have been many bug fixes on Section View labels in recent years.)
