In SP 2.0 I use to get drawing views that would disappear. The only way I
could make them come back was to change them to shaded and then back to HLR.
Now in SP 3.0 They disappear and WILL NOT come back! I have no choice be to
go back to 2.0 or earlier.
I'm speechless. Dropping my subscription service renewal this year is going
to be very temping to say the least.
I had the same problem in SP2 -- the main reason I installed SP3 was to
Haven't been able to make it happen ---yet--- in SP3.
Note to get around it in SP2 I would change the offending view to Draft
quality. I have just opened the previously offending drawings and
changed views back to High Quality with no problem.
The Drawings were of differing Configurations of the same Sheetmetal
part. Included in each drawing, is a view showing an assembly of the
part with PEM fasteners. All Configs were based on a design table.
In SP 2 the problem seemed to be worse when there were drawing views of
differing configurations in the same drawing. Or if there were
interfering parts as is case with some PEM / part assemblies.
Could you email me the drawing & part? I'd be interested to see if it's
repeatable -- and what settings you have on.

I had the same problem with sp2 and got a simple workaround.
I just make sure I open the 3D file been drawn before opening the
concerned 2D files. It seems that many issues with Sw are update
related and you have to find a way to force the update or at least
make it easier for the software.

This seems to have been a longstanding Solidworks problem - I've seen
it since 2003.
On 2005 sp3, the fix of changing view to shaded and back (or multiples
from feature manager) seems to do the trick for me - But - - Hello -
solidworks corp. this is pretty fundamental.... same old story, more
features - no more reliability.
