SOLIDWORKS options are divided into the following categories:
  • System Options apply to all documents, current and future.
  • Document Properties apply only to the currently active document.

New documents get their document settings (such as Units, Image Quality, and so on) from the document properties of the template used in creating the document. The Copy Settings Wizard exports registry settings so that options can be copied to other computers. See the SOLIDWORKS Import and Export dialog boxes for import and export options.

To access the Options dialog box, click Options (Standard toolbar) or Tools > Options.
