While navigating in SOLIDWORKS PDM Vault View my Mouse Pointer Jumps around?

Article by Nadeem Akhtar updated March 31, 2020


If the mouse pointer jumps around when navigating through folders in SOLIDWORKS PDM vault view, you can deselect the option to snap in mouse properties. When the option is selected, the pointer will jump from the folder or file you click on to an ambiguous point in the Windows Explorer toolbar.

Browse to the Mouse Properties in Windows Control Panel, select the tab “Pointer Options“, deselect “Automatically move pointer to the default button in a dialog box” under Snap To, and pick OK.
