SOLIDWORKS Simulation study trees can become long and harder to navigate when you start into more complex studies. While adding new contacts/loads/fixtures and defining materials/shells/etc, the folders and sub-folders are expanded.
In previous versions, collapsing the tree required clicking the arrows beside each sub-folder.
New in SOLIDWORKS Simulation 2020 is the ability to right-click on or beside a folder or sub-folder (i.e. Parts) and select ‘Collapse Tree Items’.
Now the entire tree will collapse to its smallest size making it easier to access the required features.
TIP: Press Shift+C while in the Simulation study tree as a shortcut to collapse all folders. This shortcut has been available in the SOLIDWORKS FeatureManager Tree for quite some time.
