    Who's using automatic note merging when dragging?

    Matthew Lorono

      There was a discussion last year about SolidWorks new automatic note merging functionality.  https://forum.solidworks.com/message/145889  When a user drags an annotation note and drops it onto another annotation note, the two notes merge.  The method to avoid the merge involves holding down the SHIFT key during the drag and drop process.  Due to customer feedback, a settings in System Options was added to disable this function.

       

      I'm doing some research.  I'm interested to know:

      1. who is still using the automatic note mergering capability? 
      2. Who's not using it? 
      3. What do you think of the idea of switching the use of SHIFT key so that notes only merge when the SHIFT key is held down?  (Right now, users must hold the SHIFT key to prevent the merging of notes.)
