When we use "update" command under "geometry" tab/ribbon, only 3d model updated w.r.t the selected other 3d model, but the view we created under "view tab" not updates according. We have to updates the views one by one manually. We tried with "file- update- SolidWorks composer document" but still not get the results.

I have a model assembly with approximately 10 sub-assemblies that each contain simple parts with extrusion lengths that are variable. When I say the part lengths are variable, they can be either top assembly ( Multiple configurations) or sub-assembly configurations dependent OR top level custom property input (via Property Tab Builder menu).

I created a macro to replace "Save" and "Save As" features to perform some functions to help with custom properties formatting for our file management software. I created icons replicating the "Save" and "Save As" icons, except in red (my company color). I want to place them at the top toolbar but they shrink in size to the point you can't really make out what they are. Has anyone seen this before, and is there a fix to this?

I know I've been reading about the complaints about SWW now being called 3DEXPERIENCE WORLD, so I was trying to get some more information on if this could even help my company. As I've been searching about for more information about this 3Dexperience platform, everything I'm reading is just a general explanation of everything I can just do myself in solidworks. it seems like there are solidworks add-ons that are explaining 3DEXPERIENCE such as the simulation. It's just fustrating trying to
