I open a part within that assembly and check it out, make changes and save. go back to my assembly and it changes to read only. click on PDM vault blueberry and right click on top assembly and the check out option is greyed out. all other options will replace the part I just made the changes to SW 2018 SP5.0 SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

Good afternoon, have been testing data card input formulas nice feauture in some cases. However noticed interesting thing if i change input formula it doent reset. For example if i delete Edit Box it disapears when you press LMB on the file instanly, data card input formula doesnt reset even if you check out check in file. How do you resolve this if you have many parts?

We have three seats of SW and three users. We are storing all of our files (>3000) on a server and accessing them with Windows File Explorer. How much easier would our lives become if we transitioned to PDM? (Sorry, I'm an engineer...I can't help it. ) We need to justify the cost.

Hi everybody! Right now I'm using Solidworks PDM 2017 and I would like to Open / Check Out multiple files to migrate them to PDM 2019. Is there any way to easily save for example all .SLDPRT documents from a project folder? I can use advanced search to find all the documents that are match for my criterias, but is there a way to download all of them to my PC with a few clicks?

I have data cards with Revisions that don't match. I can't see where the mistake is made. In the example below both should be at rev A-2. Instead they are different.

Hi, After updating our EPDM 2019 SP5 we started getting this warning while changing file state. My question would be, how do we turn off this annoying warning? SolidworksSolidworks Pdm/enterprise Pdm

When selecting a user at a State transition, we require they also enter that person's name in the comments field. On the data card it's shown as a Transition Comment. This way we can look at a data card and see who is the owner of that task. Is there a way to search for a Transition Comment?

We have just started PDM notifications (SMTP) in PDM Professional. A couple of users get an error message blockking them when trying to use the links in the PDM notification email. I have searched all over the administration tool trying to find a setting for why they are getting this error. So far only 2 out of 30 users are having this issue.

For some reason, I can't get indented BOMs to drill down any further than the top level. I've tried checking out, saving, and checking back in both the top level and sub-levels making sure to set lightweight to resolved to no avail. Am I missing something here?

If i store a block in the _template folder of the PDM vault, the preview window only shows binary data. No preview of the block. Anyone else has that ? Knows how to fix it.
