So this has been bugging me for a long time. When I apply a white appearance (High/Medium/Low Gloss/Satin Plastic) to a part the appearance only seems to get a white highlight on it. I have to change or re-apply the scene in order to get the white appearance to show up. Has anyone else noticed this?

Hi Everyone, As you probably know, the ESC key is supposed to work like "cancel" or "close" when you are in a command, dialog, PropertyManager, etc.

Sometimes the SW2016 window expands to full screen and temporarily covers the start button and tray icons. This is very annoying because it prevents me from checking email or doing other non-SW things. When SW is finished with the current operation (usually saving or closing files) the window returns to normal size making the tray icons available again.

Graphical Glitch The issue I am having is whenever I click in the workspace the user interface breaks and displays part of the command manager and the feature manager, which stays on the screen for a few seconds then leaves once I move my mouse out of the workspace to certain portions of the screen, or click outside of the workspace. Multiple clicks will produce this error again in one of those classic dragging windows situations.

I'm using SW 2018 SP3 and have a UHD screen (3200 x 1800). Unfortunately after upgrading (from 2017 to 2018), it seems the measure tool font is much too large (see attachment). I noticed that font sizing in the measure tool was something changed in 2018, but even with the smallest font allowable, it's still too large. Any way to fix this?

I just watched a video on using the "Instant 3D" feature. I replayed 7 times. Mine is not working as the 2011 video shows. I also searched out the SW Help pages.

The asterisks key can be used to expand everything in the feature tree. We use folders and it would be handy to have one key to expand all the folders to see what is in them. Is there a key that will do this? If nothing else is there an api command that will expand a folder.

Display Pane I just added the word "Display Pane" into the SW Help search bar because I want to see an example of that a "Display pane" is and where to find it. I didn't get nothing.

Having an issue with 2017-2018 Solidworks student version crashing on the splash screen. What's also noteably odd is that the same splash screen picture is appearing each time instead of the normal cycling through the various images.

I have been using this Solidworks version during two years without a problem until today, when it begins to crash on startup (just when it is "loading task panes"). I don't really know why Solidworks is crashing. I didn't do any change in my computer neither SolidWorks config.

I have an issue that drives me nuts. When I select open file I get the open file dialog box but it seems like the columns are always resizing themselves. I have been working on cleaning up some files and so forth and have been opening a lot of files. I will open a few fine then all of a sudden the file preview portion of the dialog box is bigger and I have to resize it to see my file paths.

Shift 'C' is a great shortcut to collapse the Feature Manager tree. But is there a single command to do the opposite and EXPAND the complete FM tree? Mine doesn't collapse, it scrolls down.

Context-sensitive keyboard shortcut executes different commands assigned to the currently active document type. Allows you to use one keyboard shortcut to run a set of commands specific to a sketch, part, assembly or drawing, whichever is current when the keyboard shortcut is pressed.

Coming from 2014, just installed 2018. Used to be with sketch open, right mouse click would come up with list of sketch items - circle, ellipse, so forth. Now, no matter what I can see to do so far, that is hidden in a sub-menu.

Do you use the touch interface? If you do, 2 questions, what hardware (screen and stylus) and what type of design do you do? It seems touch is most accessible on small devices, but it's only really practical on large (expensive) devices. Do you actually use the interface (icons, menus) with touch, or just sketching, editing, graphical stuff?

I'm hoping to be able to add the edit sketch tool to the in context menu that appears when you left click on a face of sheet metal part, either on the base flange or any other flange on that part. I have tried the customize button (see Pic. 2) for in context menus, but I can't find the edit sketch command in the lists of options to add. Back story / Rant...

Is there a way to keep the bounding box that was added in 2018 from showing besides the setting in Visibility on/off or not using it at all. When the size of the part changes any the bounding box turns itself back on. This is a real pain when you go to the drawing and the box is visible once again. Plus when it's visible in the drawing, this then makes it a pickable object & that causes issues.

Opinions... Context-sensitive shortcut keys? So we already have context-sensitive menus for part/assembly/sketch/drawing.
