Synch tech is really great, it makes the designing sth different from sketch guided features, sth very flexible and friendly

Bbut why it has not yet implemented in solidworks maybe it is a protected invention for Siemens?

I have the same problem , and finally i give up and start manualy type the numbers in the table or delete the table and making it again. I think this is a still not fix bug from SW.

I have tried to modify them by clicking on the top of the column and changing it to custom and manually typing in the letters, but they dont change over. If I type in "A",  it still shows up as "D" on the hole.

Can you rename them by highlighting the holes in the feature manager to put them in the order you want i.e A,B,C…? Have you tried modifying the properties of the pattern like when you create a detail or section view?

Hi everyone. I have another question for you guys. I am running SW 20210 and I use the Hole Table on just about all of my sheet metal drawings. My question is this, is there a way to alter the "TAG" column? My hole table calls out all of my holes, but not squares or rectangles. When I delete the ones I dont need, my tags look like, C, F, K, AA and so on. Is there a way to manually change the tag listing???

I haven't instal 2011 yet, but i still have problem with some bugs in hole wesart that still remain from previous version.

Sevijayakumar see attached for drawing template sample. There is a lot of way of improoving the templates depent of what you are you looking for..SolidWorks%20MET%20Templates.pdf

Hi Everybudy,

I want creat new drawing templet in solidworks please suggest me how to creat templet in better way.If possible send me the sample of the templet.

I agree, BUT if he dimensions the holes, they wil still be odd size. A callout to a PEM Part Reference to Spec Sheet instead will solve that problem. The conversion BACK to inches still will display some machining ambiguity, but a 2 or 3 place GDT tolerence would at least make it doable... ( is that a word? I've had gaps since my stroke ) The good news is that any error will be divided by 2.54~ making that error wirthin most acceptable tolerance allowances. I agree with designing in METRIC. Just be careful if there are mating reciprocating fits.

Bill, you are correct, However as Jay stated "I have to design prototypes in standard, but I have to convert my designs to metric to be manufactured." He should design in straight metric and change units to inch for proto's. This will allow him to test the final metric design via the prototype. PCBA clearance holes will work for either. Mounting with sheetmetal (by gage) and pems. he could just change the PEM callout from inch to metric.
