    Issues with making selections in solidworks

    Lenny Dichiara

      Hi all -

      I had a question which I was wondering if anyone had similar issues with. I don't recall it every being this bad, but I have been having issues

      with selecting items when I am working in Solidworks 2014. There is no one set example it is pretty much across the board.
      I am not sure if maybe it is an issue with my mouse (I have a Microsoft notebook 5000 mouse I use)

      When I am in my document, although the mouse isn't visibly choppy it feels like it hesitates before it will actually go onto the area I am trying t select, be

      it a point or line in my sketch or a tool icon, etc...

      I guess my first question is -

      Has anybody had similar issues?

      Could it be I need a new mouse or is it software related?

      Is there a way to control the sensitivity of selection items?

      If I am working in a sketch, for example, sometimes to select a point or a line it feels as if I have to hit that EXACT pixel to grab the item I want - which is

      extremely frustrating and has led to a lot of lost time in my workflow


      Any insight is appreciated.


      Thank you
