  • IModelDocExtension::SelectByRay is now recorded instead of IModelDocExtension::SelectByID2 by the macro recorder when the selection relies on selection coordinates and the selection could fail if the model view is altered and the macro is rerun.
  • Header files for general helper functions and sample models for use with the SOLIDWORKS API now reside in the default system public folder path. This path is typically C:\Users\Public\Documents\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS 2017. Elsewhere in the Help, this path is referred to as public_documents.
