I'm using Windows 10 & SW 2015 SP5.0 (I also see this w/ SW 2016). I work with a Windows Explorer window open and extra large icons showing. In SolidWorks, "Show thumbnail graphics in Windows Explorer" is turned on.

Clicking "Use Custom Scale" then scroll all the way up to "User Defined" and you can enter your scale. There should be just another radio button and type in your scale. I do this all day drawings, when its just one drawing its not a big deal, but when you have to change like 10 drawings a day with 3-4 views it gets really annoying.

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?

So this just started today: When I select File->Save As, none of the Save As options are available, unless I select Hide Folders and then Show Folders (or change the file type I want to save as, and then change it back). By "Save As Options" I am referring to the button selector for "Save as" "Save as copy and continue" and "Save as copy and open" along with other options, depending on file type. Currently running SW 2014 SP 5

Desktop Background seen through Solidworks Whenever I open Solidworks on my laptop now (this started mid last week for seemingly no reason), I only see the top and bottom menu bars and see through to my desktop background everywhere else. I'm unable to see any of my assemblies, parts or drawings when I try to open them.

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

For a University class. We made an app that interfaces with SolidWorks. Currently it can change the orientation of the part/assembly based on the orientation of the phone. It also displays the shortcuts based on the state that you are in in SolidWorks (sketch, assembly. Etc.).

Small Triad Does anyone have any idea why my Triad has gone small? It's still active, if I roll over it I can move parts in the X, Y, Z axis or rotate about X, Y, Z but it's difficult to see which one you are on & extremely difficult to pick the one you want.

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.

Dynamic Highlighting Why does this Dynamic highlighting turn itself off and how can I stop it? It turns off random, sometimes usually while am in the middle of a command like adding dimensions on a drawing sheet.

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.

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.

When i do exploded views, i like to input values into the exploded distance. My Problem: when you input a number into the exploded step, you can't just hit enter you have to press (with the mouse) either apply or done for the number to be input.
