I get the following when I open a 2012 file in 2013 with hardware in it. How do I get the hardware to view correctly?
Don't save the changes to you assembly. What's happening is Solidworks is using the fasteners from the the new install and they don't have any of your sizes, so they're displaying the preview configuration-which is frickin' huge.
Go into options and uncheck this control and then reload your assembly.
Thanks John, but that box was already unchecked and I did not save my assembly but the still come in very large.
Well I came up with a work around that seem to work. I opened a new assembly file, inserted the hardware type that was shown huge in the above picture. Save the new assembly so that size of hardware would be in the library. Deleted the new assembly I just created. Reopened the file that had shown the hardware size incorrect, RMB on hardware item in the feature manager and did an edit tool box componet and it worked.
