I am sure this has a very simple answer, but throughout the many years of using SOLIDWORKS I have been unable to figure this out (created an account on the forums with hopes of finally settling this).
Take a this basic 2.5" X 4.5" plate for an example.
If I view this part from the Right Side, how do I select the edge of a hole (highlighted in yellow)? In a drawing or sketch, I can dimension to this hole as a reference without any issues. However, no matter what filter I use, I can't select this as an edge to measure from (have tried filtering edges). I have several parts with lots of holes near bend radii that I simply want to click and measure respective distances.
Again the issue is selecting the hole edge in PARTS or ASSEMBLIES to use the measure tool. I am able to select this as a reference for dimensions in sketches and drawings without problems.
I hope this makes sense. I know I am missing something terribly obvious... appreciate the help!
