Advanced System Options

Restore messages that have been suppressed.

You can suppress messages that you see frequently if you know that you will always choose the default response.

Click Reset to restore factory defaults for all system options or only for options on this page.

For example, if you prefer to work with dimension driven sketches, you can suppress the Make Dimension Driven? message box by checking Don't ask again when the message is displayed.  When you over define a sketch you no longer see the message.

To restore a suppressed message:

  1. Click Options or select Tools, Options.

  2. On the System Options tab, click Advanced.

  3. Under Dismissed messages (checked messages will be shown again), check the message to restore.

  4. Click OK.
