I use chamfer all the time and fillet only occassionally. Is there a way to set the icon for fillet/chamfer to default tochamfer instead of fillet? A minor annoyance, but would save a click or two times thousands ofchamfers over the course of a year. Thanks.SolidworksUser Interface

I've N-E-V-E-R clicked the "don't show this again" box forany dialog, yet I'm constantly opening files which have dismissedmessages (especially the "different units/resolved" one lately). This is supposed to be a SYSTEM OPTION. Why is it attaching itselfto files?SolidworksUser Interface

Is there anyway to turn off the annoying unsaved documentnotification? Everytime I make a change, the dialog pops up. I looked in Tools->Options, but didn't see it. eliseSolidworksUser Interface

I have gone through my totally clean install of SW2010, checked all the standard hotkeys, and updated the list. You can grab a copy of SolidWorksHotKeys.xls at http://www.kcswug.com/documents. Interestingly enough, I didn't find any new hotkeys. But I did find that there are still some interesting oddities. :-) WT SolidworksUser Interface

just discovered that if you double click on the legs of the triad it will set you normal to that axis. e.g., double click on the Z axis (blue leg of triad) and you will be normal to Front Plane. been using Solidworks for about 12 years and never knew this. SolidworksUser Interface

Just found this one last night, don't recall where to give credit though. Need to rename a file? Right click and select SolidWorks in the context menu that comes up. A quick version of SW Explorer. (OK! Maybe not so hidden.) SolidworksUser Interface

I've accidentally done something that changed my zooming type with my mouse. Normally when you zoom in, you zoom in towards your mouse pointer but now it's just zooming straight in to the center of the screen. Where do I change this setting? SolidworksUser Interface
