CATIA V4

Merge Layer filter into Model
Use MERGE without first picking objects in Model area.

Increase Update speed
Updates can be accelerated by choosing "local solid visualisation": OFF, & "Information during process": OFF in the SOLID-UPDATE Settings. Additionally switching off the shaded mode and using only Wireframe can help the acceleration.

CATIA V5

Assign new Level for Sketches
An existing Sketch can be copied into the buffer memory and after selecting the new plane it can be pasted as insertion using the RMB.

Exit Text Window
Simply click the LMB anywhere within the screen area to end the text input.

Remove display of Section Letters
To avoid the re-instatement of deleted section letters after an update, place them in No-Show.

Plotting
By using the APPLY button in the Plot Window, the plot command remains active allowing you to send more sheets one after each other.

Getting Text from the Text Buffer
As with V4 the last 10 text entries can be retrieved from the text buffer. By using the Arrow "up" & "down" buttons it is possible to scroll through the text inserts.
