Not trained in CAD using Shark Pro. Ive built up a machine of many different parts all build using the solid tools. It starts well, everything is ok all except for struggling with more and more problems as the fils becomes larger with more internal components. The program will freeze a lot more, whether thats my PC or the program I dont know. But I do have a couple of issues if anyone knows how to repair this?

1). I am finding that I am unable to mate faces properly anymore. It will mate, but now mate upside down 180deg. So that no longer works. So aligning parts which is necessary is very difficult only being able to use the drag tools. Is there a repair for this?

2). Different files. I have found if I open a different file, the one I am working on will disappear, and I need to open a backup file.

3). On save, I got unresolved links error - whats that???

4) If I group a set of components together, a whole bunch of the solid tools dont work - is this normal? Ie, I have a motor and coupling and shaft, 3 pieces, if I group them, that pushes out any ofthe align tools. It is a bummer. Well all of them are. Is there a verification or repair process I can go through to sort this?

    1). Select all and use Edit> remove Links. Do it if possible after every move. Make a Keyboard Shortcut for it. Sometimes it works anyway not,then use the Move Feature first and do it near where it should be. Or use the Magnet Tool (v.10) and always dont forget removing links.
    2). Shark and ViaCAD is a CAD is like every other Software a Software with Bugs, but it have some strange Bugs.
    3). Just remove Links always.
    4). Just dont use the Group Feature. Make for every part a Layer and Sub-layers for Groups, but dont use Groups.
