The other day, I received a file from a customer that had an odd display issue. It appeared to have cosmetic threads showing as solid lines in one drawing, but not in the other. It turned out that one drawing’s annotations had been put on a layer that was using a solid line font. To change this, SolidWorks 2013 now allows you to right click on the cosmetic line in the drawing and select Change Layer in the menu that shows.
In previous versions, you had to turn on the Layer tool bar to make this change. Now, all you have to do is right click the annotation and select Change Layer.
You will get a floating layer tool bar to make the change to the layer applied to the selected annotation.
Nice little addition that was not shown in the “What’s New for SolidWorks 2013.”
