Nope... (annoying beeping sound) It doesn't work!!!
I closed SolidWorks, I set the windows explorer display folder options
default for all folders to the following. Details, sort by file type. I
open the "Open" dialog and it displays "List" in what seems to be
sorted by "name". I change the SolidWorks Open dialog to "Details" and
sort by file type and open a file. I then go back to the "Open" dialog
and it's back to display "List".
Arrrrggggg! SolidWorks developers, please allow the Open dialog to
allow for setting a default display .ie Details, Thumbnails, List and
allow for sorting.
I am running windows XP SP2, SolidWorks 2005 SP2.
