I can rotate an assembly of actors. And I can pan and zoom in and zoom out to get the view I want to output from the Technical Illustration workshop. I can also click the perspective button in the bottom right hand corner. I can save the position as a view or camera view.

I have created views for one file. Now, I want to replace it with a different product. The new product is almost similar to the 1st products, I have only option to update and if I update the file with the different product it does reflect any change. I don't want to create configuration but want to replace with different products?

When I open a SW Assembly in composer all the parts are suppressed and it won't let me unsuppressed them. When the assembly is opened in SW it is all resolved, this is a problem for historic assemblies as well as the ones I'm working on. Any models that are current saved in composer work fine it only is affecting newly opened assemblies.

In the Properties pane on the left is there a way to save settings? For example: when I create Paths (explosion lines) they always come in at 1pt with Extremities set to Round on both ends. I want to change that default.

I would like to ask if there is a way to create a pdf not made by only 1 image as a raster but made of fonts and images which I can export from the pdf if needed. Composer is a grafiktool not able to create a layout. So if you want to create a layout with text, raster, etc. use indesign, word, ... and than create the pdf.

I'm looking at some different options for animating a large assembly. One of the options I'm considering is taking the work I've already done in SOLIDWORKS motion study and importing that into Composer to add some additional things to it. Is this possible?

How do I place a Label that points to something in a Detail? When I select Label I can place one that attaches to an Actor in a View. But I want to point to small parts/Actors that are inside a Detail. The Label tool doesn't seem to attach to anything inside a Detail.

In the technical illustrations that I am producing I want to show some items with different colored outlines and possibly filled. These items would indicate that they are not supplied in the kit. I've been through the VAR's tutorial but it didn't cover this and I haven't figure out where to change those two properties for just selected parts, not the whole drawing.

We use configuration in SolidWorks for all of our hardware. So, currently, in our BOMs in Composer we have to set it up to show non-configuration descriptions (Custom Properties) in one column and configuration descriptions (Configuration Properties) in a second column in order to show descriptions for all our make parts and hardware. But, having 2 columns for descriptions is very cluttered. We were told by our VAR that a work around is to copy/paste the hardware description into the correct
