Just a couple of days ago I noticed that when I tried to add a relation within a sketch it wasn't popping up the options to chose the relation that I wanted. I have been using Solidworks 2014 with this company for the last 9 months and am just having this issue all of a sudden. No one else seems to be having this issue.

I saw a video (I don't remember which one- or what it was about) but the person doing the video showed a way of, within the sketch merging two rectangles instantly within the sketch. I cannot for the life of me remember how he did it. I can't remember if it was an option or mode selected, or holding down a certain key (or both?). Anywhere the rectangles overlapped or were line to line, they would automatically merge into one continuous irregular shape.

I am gonna go crazy about this. In Skecth 14, even though I put the same dimensions and angles on both sides, it doesn't seem to be symmetric exactly. The two lines from the bottom corners of the rectangle to the curve that I am working on are not exactly the same. They are both 45 degrees to the bottom line which is horizontal, and coincident to the curve, but their lenghts are not the same.

Since 2017 update, I can no longer rotate a view by a selected angle, the option of specifying a certain angle has been removed and will only rotate by moving the mouse. This is no good for me as there are some views that I need rotated by a different angle. Does anyone know where this option is ?

I am making a pattern for a stair case to use for fabricating railings. I want to make the overall rise and run the driving dimensions in a linear sketch pattern, but I cannot figure out how to make the angle of the linear pattern non-driving. I know this is possible, I've seen videos of people using a linear sketch pattern for this, but never shows how to work around that.

I have a sketch that’s patterning the upper left point over 5 times to the right. Then I pattern that original hole and pattern down 3 instances. However, when I add a configuration and change the first pattern to 4 instances in that config, it leaves two dangling points behind?

I am trying to model parts base off of full scale non dimensioned drawings on mylar (aircraft parts from the 50’s). I have gotten Hi-Res tiff scans of the mylars with hopes of inserting them as sketch pictures in SolidWorks. The tiff files are too large for SolidWorks to accept. I have tried to scale down these tiff files or broken the tiff files up into smaller sections.

I set up a custom property tab through the "Property Tab Builder" that takes input from designers, basically filling out a gear data table. I also had a sketch block that was basically just a spline profile so that designers could insert the block and then edit it to put their own values in and then use an extrude cut or swept cut to make the teeth. What I want to know is: Is there a way to make sketch blocks pull the properties from whichever configuration the part was in when the block was

Please see the attached picture for reference, the Gap1 and Gap2 should be the same, and they are driven. I understand that a global variable is not an option here, so what can I do? Thank you!

I am wondering, if there is a short-cut for Show/Hide Sketch Relation icons (or is it possible to set one)? I am currently using SolidWorks 2016, I don't know if that makes any difference.

I am making a 3D solid model of a iPhone. It was working out fine, but suddenly when I began sketching on a front plane, it was showing the sketches on the back of the model when I rotated it. I do not want that to happen. I don't want it to be transparent either since it's a part of the model.
