I'm struggling to find a reason this won't work how I believe it should. So, I create an assembly and I want all of my parts in that assembly mated to the origin. I get all the parts into the assembly and think that I can be clever and choose "Multiple Mate Mode":

Dimension Popup Preventing Circle Creation When creating a circle from an existing center point of another circle, a little dimension box seems to pop up that is intended to allow you to enter the circle diameter. I have found that if I move my mouse quickly, this text box stays on the circle center point rather than follow my mouse pointer.

I am currently using a ViewSonic VX2250WM-led (22.5") and it is pretty good. I am not very expert in this area. However, to go a bit bigger there are several questions. Are the IPS panels markedly better than the standard LCD and LED screens?

I am trying to run a mesh on a baja vehicle frame but every time I try to run it, it says the mesh has failed for 1 part. But every time I remove or suppress, it continues stating this message for another part. I'm afraid I can't help with Simulation, but I'm sure someone else will be able to.

On microscopic levels surfaces aren't really flat. As far as I know CAD models are assumed to have perfect contact. I want to see the impact of a thermal insulating material on a display, the two different mediums being steel and aluminium.

I'm looking for a nice, professional looking font that is single line, and stencil like, meaning the the interior profile will not fall out, similar to what I show below. I know there's multiple topics already posted on this, but I missed or didn't look hard enough if anyone already has a font like I'm looking for. Any ideas?

Is there a tool in SW to split a curve at two points and delete the middle segment automatically? (Like the Break command in AutoCAD). Right now I have to split the curve, split one of the two resulting joined curves, then delete the middle curve.

Is this another one of the large list of SW glitches or am I missing something simple. (All detail circles views are in the correct view area so no confusion with incorrect views). I know I can re-do the views, retain the sketch circle to overcome the situation, however that is not the point. This constantly happens, seems like SW is throwing another hissy (failure to regenerate/update) fit as seems to be the norm for 2017

I have a recurring issue most frequently with connections (rigid, pin connector, etc.) where the green OK checkmark does nothing when pressed. The "keep visible" pushpin button is not pressed, so it is not trying to create multiple connections, it is simply not creating any at all. I cannot find any information on what might be causing this issue. Does anyone know why this occurs?

I have to blocks settled on each other, and I would like to know the force that could push them off each other. If I add mates to make them on top of each other, the force would move both of them. How can I tell solidworks that they are different bodies but attached to each other, so I could find the force to separate them?
