There are several ways to add a Revision Symbol into a drawing in SOLIDWORKS.
The Revision Symbols is available from the Annotation Toolbar on the Command Manager for easy access.
It is also available under Insert>Annotations>Revision Symbol
You may notice that the Revision Symbol is grayed out when first attempting to insert. Revision Symbol becomes active only after creating a revision table and adding a revision row.
Do the following:
- Insert a revision table. (Insert>Tables>Revision Table)
- Right mouse button on a column ->Revisions->Add Revisions. Now the Revision Symbol becomes active.
