It seems that every new release contains small changes to the way Solidworks functions, but doesn't seem to be documented anywhere. Without going into the whole documentation things, here is a change in 2009 that I never saw explained everywhere.
Last week we updated all the computers to Solidworks 2009. This morning I had a user come and ask me how to print a selection window in 2009. Sure enough when I went to the print window in a drawing, the 'selection' option was gone. It has been replace with the following option that is highlighted below:
Current Screen Image does exactly what it says. Basically what ever is on your screen, gets printed. You can zoom to the area that you want to print, and thats what you will get. Think of it as taking a screen capture, and then printing that. It seems like a more simple way of printing only part of a drawing. I used to use the selection print from time to time, but haven't for quite some time. Is this an enhancement, or a regression in your opinion?
Update: It does seem that this change is documented in the help files if you do a search for 'print range'. Here is the description from the help file:
Current screen image. Prints the image on the screen.
As noted below by someone from Solidworks, it is there in the documentation. I should have been a bit more clear that I was pointing out changes that don't get documented in the what's new document. I would imagine most users look for the new changes in the 'what's new' document, as opposed to the general help files.
