Can the design intent panel be turned off from the beginning?
If you drag it to one side, the opposite side will stretch as well.
You can turn off the symmetry condition.
Then, the opposite side also grows and badness occurs.
Is there a way to turn off the defaults even if I adjust the registry?
I don't see the point of turning off the design intent dialog. Synchronous will always use whatever the last DI settings were. And obviously sometimes you need different settings according to what your model is and what you want it to do.
A problem with design intent is that if you attempt to change parts from an assembly via peer variables you have no idea what the design intent settings are at that moment. You have to open or edit a part to see and set them. And, coincidentally I suppose, it often is a problem with symmetry being on when I need it off or vice versa. Though other settings come in to play sometimes. I would like it if you could save the settings with the part.
And this is one of the reasons I don't see working in sync to be worth the learning curve. If I could add and remove intent part by part, plane by plane, etc......then I would dig in.
There is always a problem with symmetry. Something is insecure ..
If one side is modified, the opposite side will be corrected.
You need to change the default ... or you should be able to save your settings.
I always feel ...
Edge has the problem of not being able to save the default settings.
Turn it off and then back on again.
