I have 2016 as the newest version right now so mentioning saves me the time downloading and attempting to open the file. Perhaps a 'macro or other' can be used to automatically post the version?

Amen to that!  It saves time for everyone and is just the expedient and courteous thing to do (but we sometimes forget!).

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

Maybe Glenn Schroeder might consider that an addition to his FAQ's?

Perhaps an update to the forum software with a drop down on thread creation?

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

hei'ya Bernie.

 

although I don't propose a theme based identification

such as the big'uns do, where animals and popsicles

and all the pastels thereof you can think of,

or a fruits based legend would suit SW-

raspberry, lemon or banana etc.,

I could see it being a drop down menu

in the GUI of the posters original question

and/or in the reply pane or upload link

for the next forum revamp

I will admit if I don't guess the right ver.

I don't chase it til some poor member

asks thru gritted teeth kelef

John also has a steampunk keyboard.  Wooden keys that have a mechanism like a piano.  Or maybe that is just what he had on his wishlist.

I wouldn't mind, but it might fit better in Deepak's Forum Posting instead.  Or maybe Richard Doyle could look into getting that information to appear when we hover our cursor on someone's name or icon (especially since it's already available in our profiles)?

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

Maybe a good location to state the SWX version is where the files are uploaded to a thread.  Perhaps a checkbox for the version of the file with NO memory so it has to be checked every time before completing the attachment.  There would also need to be a "Not a SolidWorks file" box since sometimes other files such as Word, Excel, pdf, etc. are posted.

Not everyone fills that up in the profile as it's not mandatory

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

You can use the windows SW last saved with but yes you need to download the file.

 

 

May be one can add the version in the file name. For e.g. Test File  - 2016

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

I was going to say the same thing Glenn.

 

A lot of sites have a signature check box that drops said info from you profile to the bottom of the post. Continuous improvement at it's best ...

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

It IS available in our profiles ASSUMING THEY FILLED THAT PART OUT!!

I would like to see it as a required field, then we can see it as we hover over it.

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

I think the BEST place to be forced to indicate the SWX version is where files are uploaded since not everyone fills out or updates their profile and since files uploaded are not necessarily even from the user's current version.  I posted a file just the other day that was from 2013 or 2014, even though I am currently using 2016.

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

Edit your profile and add it to your "Hardware" section and insert the Version before you list your equipment... Hover your mouse over my name.. 

By: John Stoltzfus  Thu, 20 Apr 2017 15:53:55 GMT
Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

Like John said, I've placed all the versions I'm using in the hardware section

I think the BEST place is to have the upload software of the forum read the headers (or whatever) imbedded in the file and AUTOMATICALLY display the SW version.

I believe you're right.  The piano player in Peanuts was named Schroeder.  For some reason I remembered that.

Re: I have to mention that I really appreciate it when the SW version is mentioned by a poster asking a question.

exactley my point sir-

geez I really don't want to

sound soooo æ$$hatish- meh?

(I'm certain I'm preaching to the choir

[and certainly not trying to preach or teach])

ok then Shroedinger's "premis" was to show

the flaw in the ‘Copenhagener's interpretation’

(all states exist until observed[in quantum state/mechanics]),

in a sealed environment, (or forum)

ipso fatso-

the SW file is all versions

until observed (downloaded and attempted to open)

prior to observation I beleive

the Heisenberg principle applies-

but that's probably just me breakin bad

by the bye: dead cats do exist

by bye: sorry all the good ideas

have all been posted cheers.gif

LOL...

 

ipso fatso

much the same as its realtive term "ïpso facto" which means 'by the very fact', ipso fatso stands for 'by the very fat'. (2) Can be use as a term of endearment. In my case, my overweight kitty and best buddy, Magoo, is referred to as "ipso fatso" when he insists, at times, to be carried to his food dish. (3) In the feline world, a Garield! >^..^<

Magoo is called Ipso Fatso when he just can't motivate himsel to his food dish to eat AGAIN?!

There's already a place for version on the profile it's just not shown when you hover over the name.  I updated mine just the same...

Kelef Man,

Good morning! Sometimes we drift away from the topic for a break, that's good thing. Some of us have fun with it and some just talk about life, some of us refer to that as rambling. Who cares, it's all good! Anyway, your comments on your cat made me want to tell you about mine who I refer to as 'faboy'. As in fat boy. he's not fat and more like a dog than a cat and I'm really a dog person. His real name is Dude and a rescue.

hei Bernie,

I doubt that people choose cats

it's cats that choose people-

if they're cool the cat stays

if not they move on, punish us

by hoboing for days and then

come back to see if we are ok-

just to let us know who's da boss

and I do try to keep my posts

to under 1500 words-

and that's hard with so many

aside:- anyone who's read the

dead sea scrolls knows which

animal is my spirit guide

(the clue is in my handle)

oh and I did stay on topic,

just didn't write about it mwah.gif
