More often than usually, I have been finding myself getting to the page in the forums shown below. It seems if I click something too fast, I show up here. I don't think I'm supposed to be able to access this. Not that any damage could be done, but I'm sure the moderators would want to close this off to the public.

i had create a sheet format template in SW 2017..... is it could use in SW 2012 ? Glenn SchroederFeb 9, 2018 10:07 AM(in response to Budi Setiawan Setiawan) I've never tried, but I don't think it will work. I know that you can't use document templates that were saved in a later version, so I assume the same is true for sheet formats.

I thought I would like to show some appreciation the guys that seem to working tirelessly to answer all these questions that us beginners have. * Quests? Points?

I do not understand the purpose of missions on this site. I recently completed my first author mission and quite naturally I expected to receive the 50 points as advertised. All that transpired was the number 1 appearing in the author mission icon.

Configurations I have an assembly with a defined configuration which should save the assembly with the modelled parts saved, the problem is when I come to re-open the assembly some parts do no save and revert back to old versions, I cannot understand why this would be as there is a saved configuration in the assembly, could this be a glitch with SW ? If possible attach your assembly and the parts in that assembly.

I think, that a forum points for a correct answers and others, are not counted correctly. Somebody knows why? How long this issue will be persist?

I have seen posts marked as ideas instead of questions. How do I do this? they have to be posted in the ideas section, and that is only open for posting for a limited time each year (currently closed for posting, but open for voting).

Is there a way to search the forum with search terms? I looked for and thought I found it when You choose read discussions, but when I go there and type text into the "Type to filter by text" input nothing happens. also this is more general, but is there a help file for the forum with how to stuff? I tried the question mark but that just brought me toGreg Jankowskis post which is good but quickly diverged into questions about SW rather than the forum. Thank You

hello everyone, my friend and i have to do a school project with solidworks and try to invent or improve something that will make everyday life easier. we've thought about making a boiling pot and put a draining hall on the side of it, near the bottom so you can drain liquids from it in case you are making pasta or something of this sort. i wanted to ask you what do you think will be the best way to try and create such thing and what materials would you make the parts from Tags:none(add)school

EDITED by Jim Wilkinson: I branched this from the initial FAQ discussion since it is not directly related. I think it would help if SW would add a post about etiquette and proper form. Since common courtesy is not hereditary I would suggest that SW shows initiative.

As briefly mentioned before the new year, we have been working on a new approach to FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) in the forums.Glenn Schroederdid an awesome job creating and maintaining two discussion threads with many FAQs in those threads. However, the threads were not easily searchable or navigated, they were "hidden" among all other posts, and they were hard to reference. I'm happy to announce that with Glenn's help, we now have a newFAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)space in the forum.

First post here. Have an issue with laggy graphics when using space pilot in SW2017 (pan, tilt & zoom), (software versions 3Dxware 10.5.4, 3Sxwincore 17,5,4,14569) but graphics run "smooth as silk" when using only the navigation on the mouse. Tried to search answers on google as well, but no luck. (FYI,"Turn off dynamic highlight from graphic view" doesnt have any effect)

Is anyone else having a problem seeing page two of the Ideas when they're sorted by Score? I can see the first page okay, but when I click on the link to go to Page 2 nothing happens. I click on the link for page 3 and it works, and there's a gap of about 6 vote totals so I assume that really is page 3. With 3 active, I again click on the link for page 2, and again, nothing happens.

Google Chrome Questions I've been hanging on to using Internet Explorer to follow the forum, but in the last week or so it's gotten painfully slow, so I've switched to Chrome (I had to do that some time ago for Pandora, so I already had it installed). Anyway, now that the background is over, here are my questions:
