    Greetings Everyone –

    I just received an e-mail from “PayPal”, informing me that “MountainWave” has cancelled my annual automatic payments. Although it doesn’t specifically state so; I believe it to be regarding my subscription to “Using SolidWorks”. Have any of the rest of you received the same notice? Is Ben closing the “Using SolidWorks” web-site? More importantly; is he okay?
    Ben, if you’re reading this; how are you? If you’re dropping the “Using SolidWorks” web-site, I’ll miss your tutorials, but if it has ceased to be rewarding, enjoyable, and/or profitable, and/or has become a burden to you; I am, for whatever it’s worth, in favor of your stopping it. Otherwise, I don’t wish to cancel my subscription, if you are continuing to produce the tutorials.

    Thank you for all of the help that you have given to me, directly and indirectly; and best wishes.

    Sincerely,
    Gary Skinner

    I am truly sorry to be asking this question on this forum, as I know it is not an Autocad Forum, however I am desperate. I don’t know what the feature is actually called, so I can’t look it up anywhere. Anyway I get a green shaded rectangle and three small windows with dimensions in them when I select anything and would like to know where to toggle this feature off, as it is very confusing.
    Thank you,
    Erin Shaunessy

      I’m pretty sure someone could help you better if you added a link to somewhere we could see a screenshot of your issue.

    I am trying to modify one of my sheet formats. I edit the sheet and make the changes to the format, but when I try to save the format it gives me an error message. Then when I try to use the format in a new drawing this is what I get and I can not use the format and I cant create or save a new one. Where are these files with the “~” on my computer. I want to delete them. Please helpCaptureCapture

    all of a sudden he middle mouse button does not work when I try to rotate my model. Not sure if my mouse failed or if my co-worker changed some setting in solidworks. Any ideas?

      The middle mouse button function for SolidWorks is controlled in the Windows Control Panel. Make sure the middle mouse button is set to middle button or something of that nature.

    Hello.
    I try to create some Candle holder with Arabic pattern on it.
    Something like this on image

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/2ne5quhgk2tk356/holder.jpg

    But i need to pattern be on whole surface and must be fluent.

    Link for dwg with pattern is here.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/ydb03ek1j7ul6p8/MIDNIGHT%20MAGIC.DWG

    How to do that.

    P.S.
    Holder can be different shape.

    Hello,
    I hope that this site is still working.
    If it is, can someone tell me please if there is a way to go into a model that has allready been extruded
    and save the sketch only as if it were never extruded? If this is possible in Solidworks, please give me
    the procedure.
    Warmest wishes,
    Regina Alden

      Alden,
      You should be able to select the sketch name in the feature manager tree and use ctrl + c to copy it. Then you can select a plane or face on the same file or a new file and ctrl + v (paste) it down and work from there.
