Solidworks tips and tricks

Hey all you Solidworks guys out there, I'm looking to learn every tip and trick I can about the software and how to be faster (and I'm sure others would have no problem with learning to be faster too.) any tips and tricks you can throw down for me to practice would be great.

for starters, here are a few I already know:
  • in assemblies, you can mate parts by holding alt while dragging a face or edge to touch the face or edge you want to mate it to.
  • sketches can be used multiple times
  • sketches can be moved from one face to another by using the "sketch plane" option when you right click on the sketch in the feature manager.
Cad, Electrical, Machining, Debugging (old school), PR, Distraction elimination
