2011 Dynamic Highlight bug? I've been working in SW2011 for a little while now, and I keep having to re-select dynamic highlight after working for a little while. It seems to be especially problematic when measuring and switching between open documents.

For some reason a couple of my toolbars that used to be in my main tab have come free and I can't re-dock them. For example, my Wedlments toolbar I can click and drag around, but I don't want that. I want it back in the big tab/toolbar/whatever it is called along with Sketch, Features etc. I have tried double clicking on it but doing so just places the floating toolbar next to the main tab.

Do you use the touch interface? If you do, 2 questions, what hardware (screen and stylus) and what type of design do you do? It seems touch is most accessible on small devices, but it's only really practical on large (expensive) devices. Do you actually use the interface (icons, menus) with touch, or just sketching, editing, graphical stuff?

No announcement, no notification of implemented, it just now works! Close SolidWorks with multiple file tabs open (saving when asked) and next time they are all there. No hunting around for files, or remembering where you were up to, just pick up where you left off.

Is there a way to increase the font size in 2017 SOLIDWORKS Help without making the paragraph too narrow? I use two monitors: One large external and a laptop. I use recommended settings on each of my monitors and it is just fine in most situations.

This kept bugging me for a while now. Since I upgraded from SW2014 to SW2017, EPDM add-in on the right side of solidworks is now displayed as bottom app (not default) I was wondering, is it possible to move EPDM add-in to the top again so that every time I open new solidworks I get EPDM add-in open by default instead of solidworks resources page?

In SW2016 when you save a mirrored part (or any referenced part for that matter) and fill in properties using the custom properties tab, they disappear after saving and reopening. However, if you fill out the values in the regular properties form, they stay. PDF after initial save

I finished a sales drawing (a pack and go of an older assembly) and wanted to start assigning actual part numbers without changing anything in the sales drawing assembly itself. I copied the sales assembly into a new folder but now the references are still linked to the original sales folder and it changed both the sales assembly files and the new assembly. Is there an easy way to change the reference file locations for all the copied and pasted files so that I break the link from the sales

When I type in a part number In the search bar at the top of the tree, it finds the part(s) ~ in the tree, but it used to hide everything else in the graphics view. It doesn't anymore. I'd like to have it hide everything again ~ like its supposed to.

I have been using this Solidworks version during two years without a problem until today, when it begins to crash on startup (just when it is "loading task panes"). I don't really know why Solidworks is crashing. I didn't do any change in my computer neither SolidWorks config.
