Be concise when posting a question in the forum

Hopefully you spend a little bit of time each week going through the SoldWorks forum? This is where the real answers to your questions are….sometimes the answers to questions you didn’t even know you had.

If you ever have a question to post, consider this Engineering Data Specialist Man’s super secret advice: “Be as clear and concise as you can in your question.”

I’ve seen some posts that are twenty paragraphs long, then the authors are always surprised [angry!] when their questions aren’t answered correctly or perhaps not at all.

The shorter the question the better. I can’t speak for everyone, but if a question reads like a text book, I either catch myself napping half way through -or skip the question all together.

Pictures and screen shots are also helpful.
