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?
