    "Add / Edit Mates" not working properly. Solidworks 2015 SP4

    James Lupinek

      Good Afternoon All,

       

      Got another minor glitch / issue with Solidworks 2015 SP4 that is adding some time to my design work.

       

      A little information for those that don't use the feature. Basically you can click a part in an assembly and choose this feature. It then brings up the mates menu and shows a list of all associated mates with the part selected. The problem I am having is when you select the part in the model and choose this feature none of the existing mates show up in the list. However when you select the same part from the design tree and use the same feature. It then populates a list with all associated mates as it should.

       

      Anyone else having this issue? I wasn't finding any repeat questions on this in the forums.

       

      Thanks,

       

      James
