I have just down loaded the 2015 edrawings viewer and when I open a solid works drawing (SLDDRW) the notes on the prints do not show up ???
Could be related to SW Document manager (check SOLIDWORKS Knowledge base SPR #: 627955).
Try downloading the SW Document manager from this link: Download SW Document manager and install. Finally check and report back if you still see the issue.
Thanks for the response !!
I went to the link for download ( I checked repair) and it went right thru the install.
still no notes on the prints
In SolidWorks 2015 we now have the ability to set layers to not print. Can you check if your notes are on a no-print layer in the Drawing file?
2015 What's New in SOLIDWORKS - Omit Layers from Print
I opened the print and went to layers, it only showed (Format with a green dot)
did not look like there were any other layers
Or are you thinking to have the customer that supplied the drawing check if they have it on a no-print layer ??
I think you need to check with the customer about the no-print layer from SolidWorks, you are able to view it in eDrawings at least right? We'll look into this on our end as well if there is maybe an issue we need to address, but I'm thinking they might've put them (intentionally or not) on a no-print layer in SW so we wouldn't have control on that in eDrawings.
If you can, let me know and we'll see how it goes.
No, I can not even View the notes when I open the print. They are not there at all.
but the customer say's they are when they send it ???
I am checking with them now to see if they have them on a (No-print) layer
If you're not seeing them in SW either then they're probably hidden. Click on Hide/Show Annotations under view menu in the drawings and see if that shows them
I do not have Solid Works
I use the eDrawings viewer to open customer prints. (SLDDRW) to view and print them.
When I open these prints none of the customers Notes: are showing up on them.
Can you request them to send PDF for the time being?
Yes, PDF, That is what we are doing now.
The customer say's other companies are having the same problem with opening there prints in eDrawings !!
but only some and some can open and read the notes fine.
It may be an issue on there end ???
When I click on the (Format green dot) it does remove all the dimensions, print name, number and info from the drawing.
but what I am originally missing is the Notes: on the print, Info the designer added
Hi Blake on a similar note, I'm seeing issue with excel table (inserted via Insert > Object option) on SOLIDWORKS sheet is no visible when the drawing file is being opened using eDrawings?
I've attached a SW2015 with an excel table. The same file when opened up in eDrawings 2015 doesn't show the tale.
Yep you're right, I followed up with Dan and apparently the Note that wasn't appearing was an Excel-based note. We have an issue with OLE objects (like excel) showing up in eDrawings, but this should likely be fixed for SP3.
Thanks for the conformation. I believe this is related to SPR #: 809436
Blake Reeves, using eDrawings 2016 this issue is still present. Is there a workaround or solution yet?
In addition when I do open the (SLDDRW) print it is Stamped in RED saying
