solidworks >> Delete Key Setting?

by Scotty » Wed, 20 Feb 2008 12:02:45 GMT

For some reason today my delete key won't work in SW's drafting window
or feature tree. It does everywhere else such as in dialogue boxes, and
a reboot did not fix it. Is there a setting that may have gone awry?
It's SW08 SP1.1

Thanks in advance.

For some reason it gets deleted as a keyboard command. With a file
open, Right click on any menu, and select Customize from the bottom of
the list. Go to the Keyboard Tab. Find Delete in the list and set
your delete key as the shortcut key.

Oh Thankyou so much! It was driving me completely bonkers. Strangley
enough, last week started SW to discover that every single customisation
had been lost including my drawing template document settings!

Anyway - it's all fixed now.

3. Deleting BOM table without deleting BOM balloons

The company I work for uses a separate parts list system.
Is there a way to disconnect the BOM balloons from the
BOM table?

We'd like to be able to use the BOM on our preliminary drawings
but then delete it leaving the bubbles.

Is there a way to convert the BOM balloons to
dumb bubbles so that when the BOM is deleted
the balloons don't disappear?
