There may be one or two annoying issues that you experience occasionally when making drawings in SOLIDWORKS. But, what about those problem drawings that were difficult to create from start to finish, and even beyond with difficulty revising them too? Do you have to create one particularly kind of drawing that just needs workaround after workaround or heavily finessed to get it to be correct on the released PDF? ...then you still question how one might edit the drawing later on to maintain those

Drawing views missing/empty I opened my drawing and some of the views are missing. All of the annotations are still there and the edges highlight when I hover my mouse over the view, but I can't get the part to become visible.

When I create a new drawing from a part the drawing opens with the sheet format in edit mode. Is there a way to default Solidworks to not do that? Welcome to the forum.

I have some assemblies made up of a set of parts that get put together in different but similar ways. For instance my assembly might have lights in one configuration and no lights in another, but the the rest is the same. I would like to be able to have all of my parts drawn once and then find some way to pull in the appropriate part drawings to my project drawing package in such a way that if I were to modify a part drawing it would trickle out to various configurations of my top level assembly

Drawing dimension default color Something has happened to my drawing template causing all my default dimension/annotation color to become red, I've checked the System Options > Colors and none appear to have that color selected.

Exploring new ways of displaying my drawings, and looking at weldment cutlists. I am trying to add an angle column to the cutlist to show mitres, cant for the life of me figure this out. I know it can be done, but the help seems a bit hazy. Do you need to create a custom table from scratch or......

The past couple days I have been plagued by this error when opening drawings: "SOLIDWORKS encountered a problem in the file:" It leaves the drawing corrupted where I can no longer open it. I have tried opening the assembly and rebuilding it but it does not fix the drawing issue. Does anyone know what might cause this?

I have a single part file (not an assembly) that I have put into a drawing. This part has 15+ configurations. I want to show all the configurations' part numbers with corresponding material properties in a table (maybe a BOM). How do I go about doing this?

Not long ago I discovered the "flag note bank" and thought it would be a savior. Especially since I am working on several projects that require a full B size page of notes that are referenced on subsequent pages of my drawings. I assumed, perhaps wrongly, that I could add, remove and rearrange notes in the bank and that their references would update to reflect the new numbers. Sometimes this seems to work, other times not.

I use Pack & Go to copy existing drawings & assemblies into a new project. I initiate the P&G command from the drawing environment. After the project is Packed & Gone, I open the new drawing and use File>Find References to confirm that the drawing is referencing only the models I want referenced (also to see that referenced files are named & stored appropriately..).

View boundaries grow when rotating view? I have started a new drawing and inserted the front view of the part. The view boundary is nice and tight around the part.

I just created a drawing and altered the dimension text size & styles to my liking. I decided to save the settings because I have a lot of similar drawings to make, so I saved the "Overall drafting standards" to a file. I began the next drawing and loaded the "Overall drafting standards" file to find that the text, arrow size and style were back to default settings. How do you properly save these settings?

I currently have several templates that use custom properties to auto populate the title block with the part or assembly information so I have a basic understanding of mapping. What I need to be able to do is link a custom property name to the title section in the summary tab of the information within a part or assembly. For example in a model I have a custom property name labeled "Description" that I would like to get to auto populate the "Title" section in the Summary tab of the information.
