I am currently running Solidworks 2013 and have been for awhile now, upgrade from 2012. One thing that has been frustrating me and I am not sure if it is bug or just and option I am missing. I have a habit of hitting the ESC key a lot when I am designing and want to get out of a option.


In Solidworks 2013 after mating components together but the mate window is still open, previous mates showing in the Mates window at the bottom, if you hit the ESC key it will undo all those already created mates in the lower box. The only way to get it to work properly is to hit "ok" twice or "enter" twice to completely close out of the mate option. In solidworks 2012 once you created the mates they were saved and you could hit the esc key to close out everything and it wouldn't undo all saved mates.


Anyone else having this problem? Or know how to get around it other then just learning how not to be trigger happy with the esc key lol.
