Coming from 2014, just installed 2018. Used to be with sketch open, right mouse click would come up with list of sketch items - circle, ellipse, so forth. Now, no matter what I can see to do so far, that is hidden in a sub-menu.

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.

Is there a way to keep the bounding box that was added in 2018 from showing besides the setting in Visibility on/off or not using it at all. When the size of the part changes any the bounding box turns itself back on. This is a real pain when you go to the drawing and the box is visible once again. Plus when it's visible in the drawing, this then makes it a pickable object & that causes issues.

This is an older (maybe 2010) model of a chassis from my design library. Whenever I opened it in the past all of the "2U" derived configurations would be at the bottom of each list, but hitting rebuild would reorder them correctly. Now with 2017 SP2.0 they stay at the bottom of the list. The Numeric or Manual options under Tree Order don't seem to work.

Hi, my name is Doug Hamilton and I have been using 3-Dimensional CAD software for about 12 years now. Something that I have noticed with your software is the disclaimer on threads. I decided to take action myself to determine the problem. I have located it as well.

When I hit [Space] to use the View Selector, the drop-down menu that appears when using the mouse to open the view selector also appears (but in an extra glorious fashion). I don't really care that it does this, but it covers half of my now-zoomed-out model, not allowing me to select some of the views.

I've recently noticed that when I have an assembly file open, in the Feature Manager Tree when I expand the tree for the component parts, that there's a folder in the tree named "Features". When you expand the tree section to view the details of a part, under the filename you see the mates, and then everything else is in the "Features" folder. When you expand the tree section to view the details/components within a sub assembly, you see the parts in the sub assembly, mates, and then the "

Record Video Function Very Choppy I'm trying to record a simple video of me manipulating an assembly (not a motion study, just me moving the assembly around freely in space). No matter what settings I use in the Record Video interface, the result is very choppy, and much faster than what I recorded (it's choppy when I'm recording, as well).

I want to use Pen Tools (SW 2018) on my desktop computer. But I am kinda old school and don't know much about touch-enabled devices and available hardware. What would I look for, or where to look, to find some kind of pad device that is simple and inexpensive that will work with SolidWorks?

I would like to request Solidworks put in a "MAX VIEW" mode. when doing presentations or meetings, or mold reviews, we sometimes need the max screen real estate. So I currently just close command manager, all the task panes, trees, toolbars, etc. It would be nice to have a single click button that did that for you. Taking it one step further, maybe even multiple to choose from for different "profiles" for instance, one day your doing weldments, and the next surfacing, you could have two

I opened a Drawing and did a Pack and Go into a folder I had just created, with today's date as the folder name. A new folder "Miscellaneous" showed up in it without me doing anything, with a "Date modified" time several minutes in the future, which I thought was rather odd. At first it was empty, but after the Pack and Go was finished it contained a single Part from my Assembly, and it's one of my Library parts that I neglected to de-select from the Pack and Go dialog. Still, this never
