Effects of Dismissed Messages in SOLIDWORKS

Article by Sanja Srzic updated July 5, 2017


The option to dismiss and re-enable messages in SOLIDWORKS has been discussed in previous blog posts.  Here are three examples of a SOLIDWORKS dismissed message causing unexpected behavior.

  1. If BOM cells cannot be edited, enabling dismissed message ‘The cell value is linked to a property in an external model…’ may correct the problem.

  2. If a SOLIDWORKS file cannot be saved, it may be that the prompt to convert an older-version file to the current version has been dismissed.

  3. When assemblies open with components suppressed, check if the prompt to search for missing component has been dismissed.
