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.

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?

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

I recently inherited a computer from my boss and when I received it from our IT person he had already installed Solidworks. For some reason I don't seem to have solidworks launcher, I even searched for the swlauncher.exe file. This causes any file I open from windows explorer to open a new session and I also don't have solidworks integration into my windows explorer (no pack n go etc). I've tried reinstalling and repairing the install and nothing has fixed the issue.

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.

I'm not sure what I did, but suddenly menu buttons are only working as dropdowns (they've lost their single-click functionality). For example, in the standard toolbar, it used to be that I could click the save icon and the part/assembly/etc would save immediately. If I wanted to choose save as, save all, or publish, I would click the dropdown arrow next to the save icon.

Lately I've found myself churning through a lot more SW files than I have the last couple of years, and it seems like I have to hit the "Esc" key a lot more than my muscle memory remembers. I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts, and it seems like something has changed in the last release or so such that some field in the Property Manager gets the keyboard focus upon selection. For example, as soon as I click to place the endpoint of a line, the cursor goes to the property manager "length" field. I

Clicking "Use Custom Scale" then scroll all the way up to "User Defined" and you can enter your scale. There should be just another radio button and type in your scale. I do this all day drawings, when its just one drawing its not a big deal, but when you have to change like 10 drawings a day with 3-4 views it gets really annoying.

So this just started today: When I select File->Save As, none of the Save As options are available, unless I select Hide Folders and then Show Folders (or change the file type I want to save as, and then change it back). By "Save As Options" I am referring to the button selector for "Save as" "Save as copy and continue" and "Save as copy and open" along with other options, depending on file type. Currently running SW 2014 SP 5

Desktop Background seen through Solidworks Whenever I open Solidworks on my laptop now (this started mid last week for seemingly no reason), I only see the top and bottom menu bars and see through to my desktop background everywhere else. I'm unable to see any of my assemblies, parts or drawings when I try to open them.
