Where Did That Command Go?

26 February 2007 One Comment

A good tip for SolidWorks (as well as just about any other app) is to always click the right mouse button (RMB) in different environments to see what options are available.  The RMB options change depending on the context of what you are doing.

In SolidWorks, for instance, a RMB in sketch mode will give you different options than a RMB in an assembly or drawing.

Something I personally always do on my new installations is to start a part, RMB on an empty area of a toolbar, choose "Customize…", select the Options tab, and click the "Show All" buttons under both the Shortcut & Menu customization fields.  This automatically expands all shortcut and menu flyouts so that you can see all commands that are available for every menu/RMB click.
