all my drawings including ones in autocad(.dwg) get saved as if they were made solidworks... where can i find a setting to make solidworks and autocad independant of each other
When you double click on them to open, do they try to open in SW or ACAD?
If they try to open up in SW then right click on them, select properties and in there set the open with program option to ACAD.
i can open them either way but cant change the default program for them
What happens when you double click on them in window explorer?
they convert to solidworks drawings
if im using autocad and i open through autocad theyll open in autocad...but no matter what i save as the default stays on solidworks
Please find instructions here as how to change default program for DWG files: Change which programs Windows uses by default
the darn thing still wont change i dont understand it. any other program i can change the settings but the ones over ridden with solidworks i cant change.....very frustrating.... it wont let me access the always use the selected program to open this file type
