When modifying an Onshape Document, the most recent change determines the thumbnail image. As a result, this image may not accurately represent your project or be practical for browsing company data. Luckily, it’s easy to select a suitable Document thumbnail.

Pro Tip: Organize your Documents using Filters & Labels.

How to Change Default Thumbnails

To change the thumbnail, open the Document, right-click a tab, and click “Select as document thumbnail”. Now you can display a preferred Part Studio or Assembly image. Or choose an uploaded image such as a product rendering.

Keep in mind that selecting the thumbnail requires edit permissions. Additionally, the default behavior returns if the selected tab is deleted or moved to another Document.

Specifying a thumbnail simplifies browsing the Documents page and makes your company’s Onshape data more engaging and colorful. Watch the video below to learn more.
