    Problems with editing sketches in Solidworks 2008

    Jeff Anderson
      I have noticed in SolidWorks 2008 that there is an new feature thatis not what it is cracked up to be.  SolidWorks 2008 nowallows you to edit a sketch and see how that will effect thegeometry of the part as you are changing the dimension. However, there is considerable difficulty when a user triesto edit a sketch that is based completely or partially on existingfeatures.  It is difficult to add to an existing sketch whenyour sketch plane is on a feature that you are not editing.  Idon't know how to explain it very well.  The only method thatI have found to over come it is to suppress the feature - then editthe sketch.  Please consider making the automatic rebuildfunction an option in the dialog box.  Is anyone elsecomplaining of this issue?

          However, there is considerable difficulty when a user tries
          to edit a sketch that is based completely or partially on existing
          features. It is difficult to add to an existing sketch when
          your sketch plane is on a feature that you are not editing. I
          don't know how to explain it very well. The only method that
          I have found to over come it is to suppress the feature - then edit
          the sketch. Please consider making the automatic rebuild
          function an option in the dialog box. Is anyone else
          complaining of this issue?

          Thats why they give you an off switch, see attached image.
