I am having a bit of trouble with using the equations in solidworks. The way that I know to use equations is to create a global variable, and then assigning that variable to something like the length of a line. Lets say I have created the variable "B" and assigned the value to be 40mm. Then I smart dimension a line and try to add the variable, the line just smart dimensions to 40mm, and not the "B" variable.

How do you get Dassault to address the 4k UI issues? There are a few posts about issues with the scaling and it seems that they won't be fixed until 2017 SPxx.

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?

When I edit an appearance & save as a new one to the library, the icon is always red in SolidWorks 2018. The appearance applies correctly but the icon is wrong. These are custom materials created in an earlier version of SolidWorks. If I edit an existing SolidWorks 2018 appearance & save as a custom appearance then the icon appears correct.

Why don't they put tabs on the bottom of SolidWorks to make switching between files easier. I know you can use Cascade or Tile windows to switch between files. But they take up too much space on the desktop. If there were tabs on the bottom, you could see all the files you have open instead of having highlight File then move over to Window and then select your file.

my ctrl+z and my ctrl+y doesn't work on solidworks 2016 edition but works on everything else, the z key works and the y key works and the ctrl key works, just not together. I can undo an redo manually by going to the edit tab and clicking it but that's annoying when i have to undo thirty things so i was wondering if someone had a fix for this? ,undo_doesn't_work

I'm a student looking to get a 3D mouse. All of the new 3dconnexion gear is out of my budget so I was looking at buying a used Spacepilot (not pro) on eBay. I know that it is no longer officially supported, but I was wondering if anyone had gotten the Spacepilot to work with the latest Solidworks release (I'm using 2017-2018 Education Edition).

The standard windows menu function "Alt F,O" no longer brings up file open dialog box after a file has been opened. It works fine after starting Solidworks, but once a file is open it no longer works. This was not an issue in previous versions. How can I get this everyday key stroke to work again after opening a file?

Hello SolidWorks Forums, I'm having an issue where the mouseover text box won't go away. Typically, this issue is resolved by shutting down and restarting SolidWorks.

I´m running SolidWorks 2018 on boot camp with an AMD Radeon R9 M370X and retina display, and suddenly my workspace stop showing, I can draw but is not showing what I'm doing if I resize the window everything appears but is gone again. I manage to use with OpenGL but is really laggy, I was wondering if this problem was generated from the meltdown & spectre patches because it was working. In the first picture is how it looks ( is already on a new sketch with a circle drawn)

I just started using SW2018 last Friday, and it seems to me that after right-clicking I have to drag the mouse farther to activate the Mouse Gestures than I did previously. Is anyone else seeing this, or have I finally slipped over the edge? Tags:none(add)mouse gesture

The SolidWorks Help page here tells how, but I do not have a 'Touch' option in the Options page as described here: My problem is that the Zoom/Pan/Rotate gestures are different depending on whether I'm in or out of Sketch Mode.

I sometimes use a laptop with a touch screen to work on parts and assemblies, often without a mouse, and end up using the touch screen a lot to manipulate my views around whatever I'm working on. This all works well, except for when I need to select multiple features like for a set of fillets. After selecting one or more features, I would touch the screen to orbit, but when I let go, all of my existing selections are lost.

Oh, wait, that means I will have to wait at least a year I think SW could be a little bit more (not most but more) pro-active when it comes to bugs & issues. I understand that Software comes with errors, but if a simple workaround could ease the pain, then why not suggest something for the mean time.

To start off, I am running solidworks 2017-2018 student edition on a dell xps 15 with windows 10, 4k screen, and a gtx1050. Solidworks is functional if I change the settings on the SLDWORKS.exe file to override high dpi scaling behavior and select scaling preformed by application as seen here.VbkNe5JHowever, the buttons are all very small and the sketch points and lines are extremely difficult to click on because they are so small. To attempt to fix this, I tried changing the settings to the 3

Solidworks when idling (waiting for user input or being minimized to the taskbar) uses one core of the CPU essentially doing nothing. This CPU usage is so large that when actually rebuilding a model, Solidworks uses only a few percent more CPU. I am using Win10 on a Dell Precision 5520 workstation with Xeon processor but I think that this is a common effect found on other system as well. Since mine is a laptop-workstation, Solidworks "sucks" the battery empty even if it is just open, minimized,
