I see that this problem has still not been resolved in SW2014. I've seen it mentioned before but I couldn't find a discussion dedicated to the issue.
I have an assembly with a design table and when I close the design table there is an error message that flashes in the upper right corner for like a millisecond, obviously too quickly to read. Sometimes when there is an error in a design table it will tell you what is wrong when you open it, but in this particular case there are no messages upon editing, only the quick flash when I close it, and the parameters do not take effect.
Has anyone ever figured out what causes the error message to disappear immediately, or know of another way to figure out what is wrong with the table? When this has happened before I would keep opening and closing the table and try to do a print screen at the perfect moment the message flashes up, but that usually takes me like 30 tries.
