In the documents SOLIDWORKS the properties can be affected with the document and/or specific configurations.

In this window of options we define in which context or the properties applied will be read.


  • Reading of the properties“:

For example, one will test the properties on the configuration “Release“, if it exists.

The reading of the properties can be carried out on the active configuration and the document if the property is absent from active configuration.

  • Application of the properties“:

For example, one will apply the properties to the configuration “Open position“, if it exists.

That can thus prove very practical to recover the properties of a configuration and to rock them on another.
