No drawings load with the tutorial


I installed SE2d tonight and tried to run the tutorials. The tutorial pane opens
but the corresponding drawing does not. The drawing outline is there, but no objects
are in it. I don't see any drawings listed when I select Open Existing Documents.
I can go through the tutorial, but without the drawing it's not much good. Any suggestions?

Ken,
At the very beginning of the tutorial, it should give information about what file
you need to open if no files are opened when the tutorial is started. If this is
not the case, then I will need to take a look at this myself this afternoon to see
what it is supposed to do. Then I can let you know further how to get a file open
to work with.

Re: No drawings load with the tutorial


Ken,
My apologies for my previous response. The system does NOT actually tell you what
files should have opened. There are only three tutorials and their corresponding
files as follows:

"Create 2D Drawings with Solid Edge" -> seddadr.dft
"Creating Schematic Diagrams with Solid Edge" -> seddasc.dft
"Using Engineering Calculation Tools in Solid Edge" -> seddbgs.dft
The files are located in:
C:\Program Files\Solid Edge 2D Drafting ST\Training
Once you start the tutorial, you can go to the Application Button (top left of Solid
Edge window) and select Open. Then go to the folder and open the corresponding
file for the tutorial you wish to work.
Hope this helps.
