Interface I won't be surprised if this already exist as a topic but I wanted to mention how cool it will be to have the properties of sketches and features pop up near the cursor as the Shortcut Bars do. With bigger screens, mouse travel to the right of the screen is getting harder. Also, it feels like my attention on the model gets compromised when turning my head away from it to go and do the input to the side of the screen.

From a programming/coding/software perspective, what would it take for solidworks to operate like that? no OS, no antivirus bs, no browsers, etc.... just turn it on, and your in the solidworks manufacturing environment with direct access to bare metal. complete with CAM, PDM, access to network file storage etc. Really?

Hello, I am considering to buy a laptop with a 4K screen (e.g. Yoga 920 14"). Have those issues related to 4K scaling been resolved? I have just tried 2018 SP4.0 on one of our 4k monitors in the office, and whilst it is still more functional than any version before.

I have a top view in a model (not a drawing) that I want to rotate 180, changing front to back and back to front. This is just to make a convenient screen shot. I find I can't do it. Even if I select a vertical axis first, the view rotates around the Z axis, whether I use "Rotate" or "Roll".

I am producing a profile shifted Helical gear, and yes I want the exact model geometry so that I can have a non gear shop machine it without using a gear cutter. Anyway, the formulas use the "Involute Function" and the "Inverse Involute Function" The later uses an iterative method to churn through the equations until the changing result is small enough so that you don't care. When I try this in Solidworks equation manager, it gives me the circular reference message.

Problem: under running Solid Works session,"open new document" command turns inactive. Occasionally and sporadically, after establishing about one to three new documents. Ctrl+N or File Menu option "New" or taskbar new icon,all totally dead, no response of any kind. Regardless of what type of new doc (part, assy or dwg) was last created you still had luck enough.

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.

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.

I don't know what happened. I was working with a sub-assembly and right after hitting Ctrl+Q the FeatureManager design tree disappeared. It is also gone from the main assembly and the drawing, but is OK for individual parts on the same project. Did I hit another key by mistake?

In a part with a long design tree, it's quite tedious to have to scroll up the top of the tree every time I want to start a sketch on the three basic planes or select a body from the folders. I'm hoping there is a way to keep the body folders and F/T/R planes visible no matter where the rest of the tree has scrolled to. Thoughts?

I clicked on something and my command manager disappeared from the tool bar. How do I get it back? I have tried right clicking on the toolbar, and then command manager.

I am having an odd issue we just upgraded from 2012 to 2018. Now every time I try to save as a part and change its name, when its referenced anywhere else, solid-works crashes. This is a big problem for me as a lot of my job is renaming standard parts and having to close everything to use the rename tool in Windows is a serious hassle as some of our assemblies are very large several thousand components large. This was not a problem in 2012!

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?

It seems like I randomly need to reload favorites to my Hole Wizard, especially when I create a new part. Simply picking the desired favorite from the drop down list doesn't always set the hole size and countersink correctly. Am I doing something wrong? I only have about 30 different holes that I use the Hole Wizard for and it would be nice to not have to double check them all the time.

I'm a student looking to get a 3D mouse. All of the new 3dconnexion gear is out of my budget so I was looking at buying a used Spacepilot (not pro) on eBay. I know that it is no longer officially supported, but I was wondering if anyone had gotten the Spacepilot to work with the latest Solidworks release (I'm using 2017-2018 Education Edition).

The title says it all. Sometimes I import dozens dxf files of circuit boards to new parts as sketches and the 2D to 3D toolbar keeps popping open in the view port every time. Not a big problem, but it is annoying. Is there any way to prevent this from happening?
