There may be a brain dead simple solution to my problem: I cannot find Import in the "File" drop down, can someone lead me to the the Import function?
SolidWorks does not have an Import command.
Just do a File > Open and select the appropriate file to open in the File Type drop down in the Open dialog box.
There should be a little arrow on the SW logo in the uppe left corner.
Click the smmall arrow (upper right hand corner) and the menu will expand out, then ckick the thumb tack and it will stay.
