I can't get past the very first "open" screen because their are no parts or assemblies shown for selection in the directory in which they reside. I think you don't have a SOLIDWORKS installed on your computer, and installed the "CAD-Translator" either.

I need to make changes to a SolidWorks model, but I do not want to have to redo the animations that I created in Solidworks Composer. Is there a way to update the composer file model without having to redo the animations? Of course there exists the File / Update function.

Flat corner arrow I am afraid that this is not possible. I tried to create such an arrow by using different kind of arrow types but didn´t get a satisfying result.

I noticed that my colleagues who work with composer are inserting composer pictures (.png) into word when creating instructions. Is it possible to insert composer file directly (similarly as autocad drawing) and to be able to open it in composer when double clicking on it?

I was wondering if there is a way to highlight actors or surfaces and save that in a view. I know I can hover over an actor and highlight it during selection, but I need to actually create views with certain components highlighted. I did try changing the actor color to make it look highlighter, but it doesn't look great.

I have set up a video to be rendered, and when I scrub through the timeline, the edges are smooth and how I want them to look. When I go to render out the video though, the edges change to a jittery looking edge. I have attached a photo of what it looks like, and an image of how it looks when I scrub through the timeline. I have tried changing the window resolution, the jittering passes and FPS in the settings, but it still has the same result.

Hi, I'm trying to produce assembly instructions for my FRC robotics team and heard that composer is the way to go, but when I try and load my assembly, I can only see two of the parts. Changing visibility to show all does nothing. I have absolutely no idea how to use this tool so if this is something painfully obvious, I'm sorry, but I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks!

I'm using primitives to apply decals to my model (some of the shapes are rotated at weird angle, or the decal doesn't encompass the entire surface). However, I can't seem to find a way to hide the primitive outlines. Any advice on hiding those, or a better way to apply decals?

The Project was to create an animation that is based on another animation. Only a few steps would change, so it would make sense to use the existing animation and integrate the new animation into it. So I created a new animation based on the existing one.

I'm seeing some strange line display behavior - I've turned certain components to Silhouette render style, and i'm keeping certain components in Technical style. All components are displaying random hidden lines which makes the picture un-usable.

Multi-line text? Yes, the easiest way would be probably to use a label and remove the attachment if not needed. You would then simply double double click the text string property or click on the 3 dots to the right of the property and enter as much text as you like.

I have a need to give a customer our Solidworks drawings in the CGM file format. I see that composer can output files in cgm format, but I'm wondering about it's ability to open the SW drawings & output them as cgms. I know I would be simply trying to use it as a translator for files, but there is no cgm export function in SW 2017 at least & it seems so far to me that composer imports 3/d files primarily etc.

I am looking for any help for Composer BOM settings. I have a exploded model and I use it multiple views. One view is for manufacturing floor and other is sales department. Each view needs to have different BOM column headings. (ID,part number, qty, finish) vs (ID, sales part number, qty, SKU).

In Composer 2018, is it possible to stack multiple balloons on a primary callout? For example, creating a callout and respective attachment for a bolt, then stacking balloons for a washer and nut adjacent to the primary balloon? I know this is possible in SolidWorks when creating drawings, there.

I am trying to create a technical Illustration and I need to have an arrow with both ends having an arrow head. Is there any way to do this without creating 2 separate arrows and overlapping them? If I overlap them, the illustrator shows that they are overlapped. Thank you

I have a SMG file with a lot of views. I have used Composer to add various colours to the parts in all the views. Changes have been made to the original SLDASM file and i am trying to update my SMG file, but every time i try the colours i've set in Composer are being changed to the colours/textures on the original SLDASM file. Is there any way to avoid this?

I've crated a bunch of symbols in Illustrator and exported them as JPG's. I wish to add these to my manuals but I cant see them when I open the 'Image Library' dock. I can see other JPG's in different folders (even larger images) and add them, no problem. Could I have exported them incorrectly?
