Whenever I import a file it always shows in shaded as the display state. My default templates are set as shaded with edges. Does anybody know where the setting is to change the display state so they always open shaded with edges
Are you referring to importing an iges or step file?
That is intended functionality with SolidWorks. You could be importing a huge data set, SolidWorks defaults to shaded only to help with system resources.
I do not believe there is a setting to toggle off that behavior.
Yes when I import a iges or step file.
Ok well I guess that answers the question.
Back to top after 5 years. I don't know if anyone else is bugged by this or not, but it bugs me.
I import a metric shiit-tonne of customer models every day and I'm getting frustrated having to turn on edge display Every. Time. I. Import.
Has this been addressed or am I one of only two people that this bothers?
Have you tried the application, "#TASK"?
Its free and I use it for that purpose as well. You can batch open *.STEP and save out the *.sldprt.
It uses your system templates.

Not sure if applies to your specific situation, but I was having similar issues with existing drawings. When they were saved, the views were saved as shaded with edges. When I would close them and reopen they would load as shaded without edges. In the options under the "Assemblies" tab, I unchecked the option "Do not display edges in shaded mode". Since then when I reopen the drawings they come in as shaded with edges. Hope that helps someone...pain in the butt having to change those views every time
