Using SW2016. What I really want to do is: while sketching, RMB on a body and hide it. The option to hide is there, but way down at the bottom of the menu - I have to click the down arrow several times before I get to the "Bodies" section of the menu, which is hardly convenient; I would like to move the "Bodies" section to the top of the menu, or add the "Hide" command to "graphics area" commands at the very top of the menu.

I'm using SW 2016 SP 5. When I'm working on any assembly file, the part and drawing shortcut menus are strangely fixed on the screen as per the attached image. Perhaps I accidentally toggled a setting, but now I am unable to move or close them. Hence looking for any tips about how to remove them.

Anyone else come across this fun one? I typically ctrl+q and then hit save, keyboard shortcut or mouse buttons doesn't matter. Then travel the cursor to the part exit button in the upper right and hit it then have this pop up?

I can't view the dynamic references parent and son, I also checked on the view menu and It's activated, but I can't see it, I'm using Solidworks 2017, there's a specific place where it's installed in the solidworks files, maybe in the update has been missed or in the options menu? I believe it is a per document setting (i.e. change in your template), except when you turn it on at assembly level.

I recently updated an existing install of 2014 to 2017. Now when I click to edit an existing sketch dimension I get a simple box where a new value can be entered instead of the spin box. The spin box pops up when the dimension is created, but not for subsequent edits.

I have posted before what a disappointment my win10 4k laptop screen has been because solidworks doesn't scale and lots of functions are almost unusable, and all different sizes. Well, here's an interesting thing...

I have installed HSMWORKS and I use SW2014. When I create a new document, or open an existing one (part/assy), the UI automatically goes to the CAM tab.

I have been having a problem where my fly-out menus jump far away from my cursor. The result being that I can never use them, because they disappear when I try to mouse over to them. (Pic below) I thought this might be a graphics card problem initially, but my card has no setting for that. Now I am at a loss. If card information is relavent I have a Radeon WX7100.

Spacebar brings up the Orientation Dialog Box. I guess I can't call it a toolbar. Every day the Orientation Dialog Box has resized itself.

It seems like I randomly need to reload favorites to my Hole Wizard, especially when I create a new part. Simply picking the desired favorite from the drop down list doesn't always set the hole size and countersink correctly. Am I doing something wrong? I only have about 30 different holes that I use the Hole Wizard for and it would be nice to not have to double check them all the time.

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 All. I posted about this years ago and never got any help, but I figured I'd try again as I'm going nuts with this. When I select parts in the feature tree, the process happens very slowly.

Touch control with trackpad I am using a Macbook pro running Win 10. I have Solidworks 2016 running OK with my mouse, but ideally I'd like to use it with just the trackpad.

I am prompted to save read-only parts/assemblies/drawings every single flippin' time I close one. It does not matter if the checkbox for 'don't prompt to save read-only documents' is ticked. (Why have this tick-box if it is just a lie?)

I recently experienced that my Solid Works 17 SP3 is unusable when I try to work on a part. It appears normal when I open part or assembly files in terms of rotation and zoom. When I open a sketch on a face of a part, it just about stops working. It takes 3 seconds to do a command.
