Since moving to my new employer, I've been using SW2015 and have found it to be chock-full of bugs. My biggest gripe is that new drawing views don't automatically link to the BOM.   Which version has caused you the most grief?

Let's try to keep this thread on topic.  Just post your favorite quotes.  Let's keep the non-contributing banter to a minimum.   I keep a file to accumulate inspiring quotes.  I ran across this one today and thought it was worthy of sharing.  The author of the article was quoting a taxi driver he met leaving a conference.  It would be nice to… (Show more)

I know we've had some great favorite quotes, but sometimes I just need a laugh.  So, I'm proposing that everyone post their favorite joke.  Make sure it's PG.  Post no matter how corny.  Can't wait to see what happens.
