Our rep said that a reason might be because we've been importing user settings from god knows how many years ago year after year. He said that we should start with a fresh install of the default '18 user settings and make our changes to that. Problem is that I don't want to have to completely uninstall and reinstall the whole thing.

Solidworks 2018 SP1.0 Customized View (Heads-Up) Toolbar in Drawings always reverts back to the original even after saving/restoring my settings multiple times. The SWx modeling customized View (Heads-Up) Toolbar restores properly - not so with the one in drawings. Is anyone else having a problem with the Heads-Up customized toolbar?

At my company, we have 4 Solidworks licenses. We currently use Solidworks 2014 SP5, but our license allows us to upgrade to Solidworks 2016. I would like to know opinions here as to whether it is worth us upgrading.
