This is my first day using solidworks, and for the last hr I have no been able to figure how this simple problem.
I make a drawing, add dimensions to it. On the screen I see the dimensions there, but when I do print preview,
or save the drawing as JPG, then only the lines show up. No dimensions.
This is what I do: Create new PART. Select TOP PLANE.
Then Ckick on skitch. Draw 2 lines connected. Then click on smart
dimensioning, and add an angle dimension between the 2 lines.
All works well. I see on the screen the angle value there and the arrows fine.
I save the drawing. Now I do print preview, or save as to JPG, but the dimensions do not show up.
They only show up on the screen when I am in sketch. How to keep the dimensions in there?
Also, is there way to save as PNG? I only see save as JPG for images.
One final small question: How do I get rid of the green markers that show up each time when
I add a dimension (right next to the values). They are little square shaped green markers that
just stay there, I do not want them since they make it hard to see the values of the dimensions.
Any recommendations for a very simple tutorial or a book for someone who never used this software before?
All the tutorials I saw are too advanced.
