The user interface in SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2011 is getting some much needed, though incremental, improvement.
All Enterprise PDM commands are now grouped into four menus that appear just above the file view pane in SolidWorks and Windows Explorer. The advantage of this change is that the shortcut menu (RMB click) is now somewhat shorter. The most frequently used commands are still available in the shortcut menu. Hopefully, this menu reorganization will help clean up the notoriously lengthy shortcut menu of previous Enterprise PDM versions.
For example, Check in and Check out functions are now available within the Actions pulldown menu, yet are still also available in the shortcut menu. Take your pick!
The new pulldown menus and the shortcut menus are still context sensitive, in that the commands which are available still depend on user selection.
