I am using Solidworks student edition 2015-2016 with SP5.0 (I have had the same issue with 2014-2015 as well). I have run the program on two separate Surface 4 Pro computers and have had the same issue. I don't have this issue with desktop PCs. I run with 150% display scaling on Windows 10.

Ever since the old equations box was replace more than a few years back, I have been using workarounds to avoid equations. Every so often I try it again and "The syntax of this equation is incorrect". It's annoying because the same thing used to work and was quite useful. Usually it is something that should be simple such as "D4@Sketch21=D4@Sketch20" or "D3@Sketch28=D5@Sketch22*1.5".

Is there a way to disable the prompt (shown below) a user receives when creating a new configuration, that asks if the user if they want to link display states to configurations. If there are any developers reading this discussion, why was it decided upon that amongst all of the prompts which a user can choose to not be reminded of, that this prompt was laft out of that mix. I know how to use display states.

This is happening in some of my assemblies. the cursor acts as if a set of selection filters are set on, but if you look at the selection filter toolbar they do not seem to be selected.

I was working with the SolidWorks 2016, when I made a sketch and I apply there the feature "boss extruder". A menu that will allow me configuring the feature (i.e. 1 or 2 directions, blind or up to a surface, ...) should appear but facts are that it does not.

Keyboard Shortcuts with multiple Letters Is there a way to have combination keyboard shortcuts? For example, I'd like the shorcut VW to change the view to wireframe and VS to change the view to shaded with edges.

How will I find commands (buttons) in solid works once the little orange box in the tutorial instruction isn't available? It seems that I have some of the tool bars visible, but the required button isn't showing up. At other times I can't even find the tool bar mentioned in the tutorial, until clicking the example in the tutorial shows the button.

A long time ago I think I used Solidworks 2006 and back then it was very easy to freely rotate a part, I think all I had to do was click on an empty space or the part itself if I'm not mistaken and I could freely rotate it. Recently I think they've updated it and you can only rotate the part freely when you click on your mouse scroll button. I find this to be a bummer because I hate using the mouse scroll button everytime I want to rotate the part.

So, remember the old Nintendo, you put the cartridge in, turn on the system and your in the game? From a programming/coding/software perspective, what would it take for solidworks to operate like that? no OS, no antivirus bs, no browsers, etc.... just turn it on, and your in the solidworks manufacturing environment with direct access to bare metal. complete with CAM, PDM, access to network file storage etc.

When having design reviews it would be handy to be able to markup the design with a simple drawing tool. Is there something built into SW to mark up the models and help point out features and changes simply and on the spot? Think microsoft paint built into Solid Works.

Does anybody know if it's possible to change the font used throughout the UI in Solidworks? I know it can be changed from black to white or visa versa by changing from the light to dark theme but I was hoping to change it to another color (green to match my feature tree). See screen capture below.

In solidworks version 2017 my selection tool won't highlight edges or points in assemblies as I roll the mouse over them. I've been digging through the help section and the options with nothing to show for the work. Any help on this would be much appreciated.

I just created a question and put it in the Drawings and Detailing 'Place' (or is it 'Space' - I don't really understand the structure of the forum, after all this time...). Imagine my surprise when I refreshed my 'Home' view and my new content was not visible.

I hate it when I am viewing a part from a specific side and I open a sketch, then exit with the RED X and it changes my view to the isometric view. Why does SW do this? Is there a good reason?

Does anyone know if it is possible to hide the small 'What's Wrong' box that pops up when you select a failing feature? I don't find the information useful at all. The box just forces me to move my mouse further to get to the tools I need to actually fix the problem

I recently updated an existing install of 2014 to 2017. Now when I click to edit an existing sketch dimension I get a simple box where a new value can be entered instead of the spin box. The spin box pops up when the dimension is created, but not for subsequent edits.
