When creating a drawing view with the display style 'shaded' I sometimes find the drawing view switching to 'shaded with edges' while only 'shaded' is still active. This mostly happens when rebuilding the drawing or when re-opening the drawing. - switching to 'use software OpenGL' under system options>performance.

I am planning to buy an assembled workstation and this PC is mainly for simulation purpose. Selected server board and a xeon processor will only support windows 10 professional 64-bit, and will not Win 7 or Win 8.1. On the microsft website, I am seeing two operating system under Win 10 Professional, one is "Windows 10 Professional" and other is "Windows 10 professional for workstation", the latter one has few more features and more rugged for high end applications (as per their words). Here my

We run PDM Standard currently and the "Vault View" window within the "Search" Tab/Drop Down is constantly resizing itself to the default size/spacing. It's not a deal breaker by any means but it's frustrating that every time we open the search function (to be specific it's only after an initial opening for the day, once adjusted it stays put for the day but resets after being closed for the day) the area in question needs to be resized or we can only see four to five files without scrolling

I don't know what setting has been changed (if any at all) but whenever I insert a centreline or note they are now black in colour (were previously grey). Yes I have the "Set Next Line Color" setting on but I've found that the Default checkbox remains unchecked even after I check it.

I've noticed since the last update to SW pro 2018 SP5 that while I'm creating features within a part that is within an assembly, when I click the exit sketch icon, it also exits from the part into the assembly. Very frustrating, I've accidentally created features at the assembly level several times now because I haven't noticed it do it immediately, and have to go back , delete them and recreate it in the part.

My question is as follows. Is it recommendable the use of Global Variables and the use of Master Sketches at the same time? I've got an assembly which I control with the use of Global Variables and Configurations, which change the overall dimensions of a 3D Master Sketch. Some of the features of the parts (like the overall size) are driven by this 3D Master sketch and other 2D Master Sketches in the assembly and the rest of the features (like thickness) are driven by the global variables in the

Is there a way to create a part by only using a pull down menu? For exampe, like a structural member. There are pull downs to select and SW will automatically create your part. Is there anyway I can personally create a tab/window like this and add in features of my own on a more advanced level than just adding in a "structural member" sketch?
