Close SOLIDWORKS Files on Check In

When you edit files and check them in from SOLIDWORKS, you can select to have SOLIDWORKS PDM close the files after the check in operation completes, rather than reload them.

This can improve performance since reloading the files can be time consuming.

To have files closed after you check them in from the SOLIDWORKS PDM add-in:

  1. In the SOLIDWORKS PDM task pane, right-click the file, and click Check In.
  2. In the Check in dialog box, in the toolbar, expand the Reload Files after Check In command and click Close Files after Check In.
  3. Complete your check in selections and click Check in.

    The files are checked in and closed in SOLIDWORKS.
