In a die design I have some models that will have wire-cut openings. My models show the wire-cut profiles but in the drawing file I add a sketched circle to show where to drill a start hole for threading the wire. The model also has tapped holes and such that I call out in a hole table. Is there a way to add the sketched circles to my hole table?

We received a bunch of drw files from a customer for quoting. Since it’s just a quote they didn’t give us models, only drw files. Does anyone know how I can open these files in Quick View mode to print using Task Scheduler?
I have already applied service pack 2 to SW10. Now I see this about SW pulling it back. Should I/Can I roll mine back to SP1?
IF so, how?

This might be a dumb question. I’m looking at a sample assembly file given to me by a customer. While in the assembly, I made a section view and clicked the green check mark in the SectionView Property Manager.
Now my assembly is visually sliced away so I can look inside. Next I wanted to move the slicing plane of the section view to a different place. Can I reopen the SectionView Property Manager while still in a section view? It seems I have to cancel the existing section view and start over. I guess I never tried this before. Hope this makes sense.
Am I losing it? I thought if you pre-select two planes or planar surfaces and select Normal To in the Orientation box, one face would be parallel to the screen and the other would be horizontal. I’m not getting that. One is parallel but the other is still on some angle. This file came from a customer and I don’t want to Move the part because it is drawn in “car position”.
When I view the home page with the posts shown, I don’t see a picture where your videos are listed. For example, your post dated 6:55 on May 7 about phone-cords. There’s a blank box with a “X” in the top left corner that I assume should be the video. I downloaded the video but I thought this blank box should be the video and just click on it and watch the video while inside of SolidJott. Is that correct? Should I have some viewer associated to your link? I’m not sure what I need to do to see the full post.
Using MS Vista Business x64 with SW09. Every time I start a new session of SW I get an annoying popup about Security Certificates. I click View Certificate and then install but then the next time I open SW I get the same popup. Ben, is this what your post dated 2/23/09 is referring to? If not, what can I do to fix this short of uninstalling SolidJott?
Does anyone have a trick for hole callout notes to recognize c’bores on the opposite side?
I installed SW 2009 sp1.0 yesterday
and now I keep getting a popup that
reads “SolidWorks Shell Extension Server
has stopped working.” Mostly when I’m browsing in Win Explorer. BTW, I’m running Vista Business x64
