How many times do you see a great thread get trashed or hijacked for various reasons and I'll take the "Stand" and say I'm the worst for doing that.. So when I'm acting stupid tell me to trash it here, get it?? Rants - Cheers - Pet Peeves - or your Aunt Lilly, bring it.. (More then likely the dumbest thread anybody started, but I tried to keep it stupid, stupid) - The Forum Moderators rules still apply, no obscene pics, raunchy language and personal attacks, those will be reported and deleted if not changed...

(edited 9/13/2017 - Added link Request for Forum Etiquette - Added another link 9/21/2017 Forum filtering )

 

To Quote the Great Rick Becker.....

"When a perfectly valid and good question is asked, the thread gets a lot of great answers and some more questions. Once the questions has been answered to each persons (this includes you and me) satisfaction, we no longer need or want the discussion to continue.
We get the emails notifying us that another (and another and another and another...) post has been made and we get frustrated with the time wasting and we get snarky.

The other thing that seems to happen all too often is a post gets hijacked. The discussion moves off of the initial topic (ONE and TWO...) into many sub topics. Sometimes this happens and the initial question hasn't been totally answered."

 

Another Great Quote from Dennis Dohogne

 

"Hey, SWX guys and gals, what if we used THIS post for some of our more fun or tangential comments so we keep the other posts with more serious discussions from getting distracted/off-topic (polluted)?"

How about this from BMX'rerer Todd Blacksher

 

- In an effort to keep the posts somewhat on topic, and make it easy to pick out the "good information," a couple of us thought it would be a good idea to put in a water cooler. Are you completely confused? It's simple, if there is a thread where we are all helping someone find a solution, and it makes you think of something semi-related, you can say "Head over to "The Kitty Dump"

 

We need a good quote from Kelef Man to get it started.....

Okay this might sound stupid but is there a way to sort the ideas by number of votes or do we have to wait for John's excel?

Thank you John for doing this. It is appreciated.

I use your spread sheet every day to find the Ideas I'm keeping track of.

 

I will wait for your revised sheet and use it to efficiently navigate the 700 or so Ideas.

So I'm probably doing something dumb here but I'm currently going through and reviewing all of the ideas on the TTL and what's happening is once I've read an idea an either voted on it or not I then click the 'back' arrow (using Chrome) to take me back to the main list. The problem is that you can only go so far before you get this...............

 

Hi Dave,

 

Instead of that flow try this.

From the main Ideas page, when you see an Idea you want to look at or vote for, RMB on the Idea and "Open in new tab".

Then click on new tab. Vote (or not). Then close tab.

Your main Idea page will be exactly as you left it.

 

Cheers.

 

..or just click on the link with your middle mouse button (the scroll wheel).  That will also open the link in a new tab.  (I learned about it from Deepak.)

If you click on the Thinker hyperlink it will tell you more about it and how it is earned.  Basically you get it by generating Ideas and voting on them.

Hopefully we'll learn that when a software is not designed to be user friendly, it create problems and mistakes for users.

Of course, with enough time and trial and error, user can develop a workflow that will reduce mistakes.

Scott is exactly right.  The forum and the TTL are hosted by Jive.  Richard Doyle shared with us their frustrations with Jive and the inability/unwillingness to do some of the things we suggested to make things better.

SolidWorks asks people to use a voting system to promote their software's improvement yet the voting system is flawed and riddled with bugs. I understand it is out of their ''power'' but they are still accountable for it.

 

It doesn't make for a good first impression, if you understand what I mean. That's kind of like a Toyota salesman driving a Ford truck.

hey, I realize its too late to submit a new top ten list idea, but just thought of this and I couldn't really find an idea where I could add this.  I like to sometimes type simple equations into the dimension modify box as I am defining a sketch in a model.  And after a I accept it, if I go back to adjust it, it only shows the computed number, not what I originally typed in.  Not a huge deal, but would be neat.  I know Inventor does this already.

And after a I accept it, if I go back to adjust it, it only shows the computed number, not what I originally typed in. Not a huge deal, but would be neat. I know Inventor does this already.

 

Hi Scott

You need to add an equals sign to make it stick!!

try =.75/2

 

edit:

 

BTW  I really like the disposable way you show as it turns the modify dimension into a calculator

Go to your Customer Portal and search for this in the Enhancement Requests.  If you don't see it adequately described there then you can submit your own.  That way you will get an APR for it and eventually be notified by e-mail if it is implemented.

You are correct that this is a limitation. This help topic documents the only PropertyManagers where equations can be entered.

Hopefully this functionality can be extended to more PropertyManagers in the future.

 

I hope this helps,

Could you check to see if you can open it and delete half of the list and then do a save as and undo and delete the other half, maybe the file is too large etc.  Or do you need to Enable the sheet??

Hi John

I got the e-mail and it opens without crashing.. but it's pretty slow.  I don't understand why it's so clunky.  Normally Excel is like lightning even with 1000's of rows/multiple sheets..  maybe all the hyperlinks?

I've saved as csv and reimported,, it's dumb now but thats all good I'll find a way

Thankyou

Sorry, I made that really confusing lol.  Yes the equal sign does work.  I did not have to type an equal sign in inventor.  its just me coming from inventor and adjusting.  Can I take it back?  see video 1:13 in.  sorry to bother. and no, I don't have to look it up in the ER.  I need more coffee...

The hyperlinks really does slow it down, so like I would do is go through it and shorten the list to what is your interest and keep an eye on it from there....

No worries Scott..

The way it is, is the way I like it.

Sometimes when I model I will copy a value from a measurement and then in the modify dimension dialog just type + CTRL-V to paste in my measurement.

In this case I'm happy it works the way you first describe.  More choice

Don't forget - to vote for this Idea, only if you want to "Revolutionize" mating, I don't mean that, I mean "Mating" components in SW..

 

No more Flipping Mates, No more Tangent Mates, No more Distant Mates, No more Distance Limit Mates, No more Cam Mates.....

 

It's a very reasonable and possible...

Question of the day:

 

Why are we not able to reload a component that is hidden?

I can't edit one in assembly when its hidden either.  I can still open it in another window.

The edit icon doesn't show in context toolbar (hidden or suppressed) for parts but its there for assembly.

Clicking on it will get a warning "Component cannot edit in place".

Before I make solid plans to go somewhere I don't care.  I would rather get this project done and blame not driving 6 hours to go visit family on the job instead of just telling em I don't feel like making another trip when they have not make 1.  The deal would be to have that week to use next year, and I have some ideas on where to go for those days.  and still have next years vacation time also.

Well I spent the best part of Sunday combing through the 'Ideas' list and casting my vote where I thought it was appropriate. To be honest, a lot of ideas either made no sense to me or had little to no impact on me so they just went by the wayside. In fact, I don't think that I actually up voted as many ideas as I presumed I might but the ones that I have I felt were very valid and well thought out.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing how this all pans out.

 

Dave.
