Are you using the origin?
Are you using dimensions?
The reason I ask - I don't even have Relations displayed as I know what SolidWorks is doing for me in the background - so I don't need to seem them, they just clutter the screen with no needed benefit. I suspect this is more a matter of experience.
It's not supposed to do that, I think you might want to look into your graphics driver. Try running SolidWorks RX it should be located with SolidWorks in your Windows Start programs menu.
As for me I like seeing the symbols there, they're small they're informative. Why not?
You can hide them altogether if you want. With a part or assembly open go to the top of the screen and click `View'. A list opens up and 2/3 of the way down is `sketch relations'. Uncheck that box and you won't see them at all.
It would seem that the problem may have had something to do with the driver although I cannot confirm it. I was using a driver hack to enable real–view on on my high-end Nvidia card (non quadro). when I shut down SW and reverted the driver then restarted SW the problem was fixed.
for confirmation and testing purposes I then reapplied the hack and restarted SW and the problem did not come back... Strange. It seems to be fixed for now I will keep my eye out to see if something causes this to trigger within the application next time.
Thank you for the feedback!
It may have been shutting down and restarting that "fixed" the problem. Sometimes SolidWorks gets its knickers in a twist and a restart or log-off/log-on or reboot is needed to get it out of its distracted state. I attribute this behavior to memory problems, but I'm an ME, so why would I think I know?
A simple reboot seemed to fix the problem for me - hopefully it does not show up often - I just moved to 2015 and had never seen this before. (Thanks Jerry for your input - one plus year ago... How's Creo treating you?)
