I find that the most efficient way to switch back and fourth between all the files I am working on is to use the 'browse open files' that is located in the tool bar under the "open" folder. I know that I can hit 'r' and bring up the 'browse recent documents' window, but that is usually populated with a bunch of stuff that I don't want to use and not the stuff that I am using (aka the files I have open). I would really like a quick shortcut to bring up the 'browse open documents' window, and I

I am trying to model some wire. 4 conductors from a connector to another connector and twisted along the way. This means that the last 1cm or so from the connector it has to "untwist" and become linear so that it mates into a 1x4 2mm pitch connector. What I have is below.

Yesterday, I updated some shared parts - when I checked an assembly that my co-worker is in charge of, on my machine I show broken mates. On his, the mates are all fine, no red x's or red down arrows. A third engineer opened the assy and it is fine on his machine. we're running workgroup PDM. I only checked in the parts, never the assy.

I am building a welding table that needs to rotate. i would like to use a latch pin to lock the table in position as part of the time it will be tilted at a 45° angle. I would like to source a stock part for the "lock ring" but nothing is turning up with my search terms. I am hoping that somewhere among the brain trust here someone knows the standard name for this part.

I have a control panel with a logo that is apparently a double nested extrusion. I created it myself and thought at the time I love this new feature. I made a copy of the control panel to work on the next rev. and when I remove some of the lettering from Boss-Extrude2 suddenly the logo generates a "double nested extrusion" mssg. and the extrusion fails.

I have investigated using grid systems but it just doesn't seem to be designed for the architectural industry. The company that I work for does a lot of architectural feature work such as stairs, awnings, canopies and lobbies. We need to follow a lot of architectural details and use the grid system setup by the project. We do most of our modeling fairly closely following the Skeleton Sketch Part Method for Large Assemblies.

im working on our drawing templates, we have the same templates we use for 2012 - 2016 and there has never been a problem. i went into the drawing format to make a change, but i decided i didnt want to mess anything up so i closed without saving. now even though i havent saved the template it wont show up in 2015, which is weird because it works in 2012 and 2016. Any ideas? When you said you "went into the drawing format to make a change", I assume you meant the sheet format?

I have someone who likes to have balloon notes to the side of a BOM. Then I have to double check that it doesn't move as changes are made to the BOM. Is there some way to attach such a bordered notes/balloons to a row in the BOM, or somehow put it right in the BOM?

I have worked for several different companies now and every company's "set-up" is just a huge mess. I want to know if there is a way out there to "organize", "set-up", and add all the content to make a very functional Solidworks? A more correct way to setup SolidWorks or the ideal way to set it up.

With 2017, we now have the ability to show comment indicators for features and configurations. They can be turned on and off by RMB on the top-most node of the Feature Manager and Configuration Manager, but I would like to use the API as well. I couldn't find anything on this in the API help, but then again, I have a hard time finding almost anything in the API help.

I have an assembly, named ERU3, which has sub-assemblies and sub-sub-assemblies. Some of the sub-assemblies and parts are generic parts used in other assemblies, and some (those prefixed with ERU3) are specific to the ERU3 assembly. Some of the ERU3 parts have drawings.
