Does anyone know if running both Solidworks 2016 & 2017 on the same computer causes either version to run terribly slow? I would not necessarily expect that the RAM is the direct cause of the slowness (unless you are utilizing more than 6 GB on the machine in which case, you ran out). It is probably another hardware components.

After recent Windows 10 upgrades I cant see thumbnail pictures only the solidworks icons, when I try to select existing models and assemblys. Take a look at these threads & see which applies to you.

My Solidworks 2014 on windows 10 seems to be zooming out every time I left mouse button click in the window for any operation (dimensioning, selecting, etc.). Has anyone else experienced this problem? I'm using an msi workstation with an nvidia quadro

Hi, I'm running a student edition of Solidworks 2015 and the performance is EXTREMELY slow. Even when I have nothing built in my brand new part file, the cursor lags, it's terrible to work in sketch mode, etc. I think those are all the specs I need.

Is there any way to make the rollback bar a touch easier to grab? The bar is only 3-4 pixels in thickness, but the mouse cursor only changed to a hand when the top 1-2 pixels are selected. Maybe add some invisible border around the bar? Increase the thickness?

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.

Parent/Child reference visualization is really cool, but it has been driving me crazy lately because it takes focus when I am trying to rename selected features. It only happens when a feature is already selected (which happens after you first create a feature, or if you click a physical feature in your CAD viewport), then you go to click on the feature name in the feature tree in order to rename it. The text will be highlighted for a second indicating you can rename it, but then the reference

Hello everyone, I have a user with a strange issue that I can't seem to get a grasp on. When he opens his solidworks vault in file explorer, the menu bars/columns are not scaling properly with the font size in the file/folder list. I have attached a picture. I can assure you that he only has this problem viewing the epdm vault and all other file explorer views are normal.

I am tired of the "rename feature" text box appearing when I'm trying to edit a feature which has already been selected. If I'm a split-second too slow in moving up to the pop-up menu containing icons for things like "edit feature" and "hide," it will disappear out from under me as the feature name becomes editable. The work-around I've found is to carefully click the icon instead of the feature name, but this is a much smaller target.

I'm working with an assembly that contains many levels of sub assembly. In the top level assembly i'd like to be able to be able to right click on screen on the sub assembly that i'm hovering over with the mouse to open it. For example if i'm hovering over a bolt that is part of that sub assembly and click to select it and right click to open, it just opens the single base level component which is the bolt.

In-context keyboard A thought occured to me the other day: would it be cool if SWX would change the function of the keys that my left hand rest on when I enter a text box that is expecting numeric input to be numeric? How much time would that save me?

My task pane is stuck at the bottom of my screen in Solidworks. How do I get it to move back to the right side of the screen? Sachin Malenahalli Murigesh May 7, 2017 5:14 AM (in response to Louanne Collins) It seems you cannot click on the Task Pane and drag it as the 'clickable' portion in task pane is hidden by the windows taskbar.

it is different than the 'normal' sketch icon. It means you have made an extrude/extrude cut from a sketch having multiple closed groups.
