    Add/Hide Cross Reference Lists in SOLIDWORKS Electrical

    August 9, 2018

    SOLIDWORKS Electrical is an incredibly powerful electrical schematic tool. As you create these schematics, you are adding a lot of information and symbols to your design. This can  lead to clutter on your sheets. One way to clean this up, is to work with layers so you can easily hide or show certain items on your sheet. One really great example of this is with cross reference lists. In this week's Video Tech Tip, I demonstrate this technique to help clean up your drawing sheet.
