When inserting my created Views to the Timeline in Animation Mode, the point at which I merged the new assembly into the document (in this case, the Drill) is captured. How do you get the merged assembly to appear in place, without showing the translation (rotation/alignment) process (see ref. image below)? Note: The translation process shows when playing the views in sequence in View Mode as well.

So we just got composer. We just went through some very basic training in which every assembly was only like 10 parts. We make large machines with thousands of parts and so I'm trying to figure out how to scale up what we can do with composer, starting with the explodes.

I am having a lot of difficulty using the "Set as Neutral Properties" and "Restore Neutral Properties" commands. I am working on a storyboard with a very large assembly, and I keep having to add components by importing them as .step files. Quite often these components need to be translated and rotated into their correct position. Once in the correct position, I want to set that position as the neutral position.

Help - The screen sub-assembly goes crazy on roll over. I have tried opening the whole assembly and the screen sub assembly in SW, rebuiliding, and saving as a .smg and it still happens. I can save as a 3DXML and it doesn't happen - but I lose all my meta data and the BOM won't populate a description.

Very often it happens that cutting planes will be shown wrong. In attached jpeg you can see the problem: On the left hand side the cutting planes have the wrong direction and not all parts are shown. I used 3 cutting planes in the illustration. Normally this is not a problem.

Solidworks Composer Panels disappeared I opened a project that I have been working on for a while and noticed that all of the panels that I added to each of my views are all invisible. They are not showing on the views, but they are still there in the collaboration tab.

I am having trouble getting Solidworks Composer to give me a dimension for the manual. I am trying to get a dimension from a certain plane on my machine to the ground. The problem is, the machine is on casters which is a round surface, so it always gives me an angle measurement rather than a distance measurement as the plane I set on the caster is never perfectly parallel to the belt plane. I would rather just set the second plane on the flat ground, but it will not allow me to do it.

I saved some views from Composer as EPS files using the Technical Illustration workshop. I do this on a regular basis and haven't changed any settings, yet occasionally when i try to open the EPS files in Adobe Illustrator i get an error "The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error". I have just saved 5 views from one SMG file in Composer as separate EPS files, and 3 opened perfectly and 2 have this error. Is there something i'm doing wrong?

I am trying to update a model in a composer document but when I do it turns off the visibility of every actor. As a result on each view in the BOM tab there is nothing visible and I can't turn off the show visible actors only button so I can see them to turn the visibility on.
