If you open a sketch, and select a face like the first photo, then hit "Convert Entities" the dialog box pops up as in the second photo. It will NOT simply give you the outline of the highlighted area.
Are you trying to get the inner loop and outer edges? If yes then I can replicate the issue.
I'm trying to do exactly what I said in the original post. I want the "outline of the highlighted area." This used to be simple in every version of Solidworks I've used since 2006. Why doesn't it work now?
This has been already reported to SW technical team under SPR 943310.
Please report to your VAR so that you can get connected to this SPR.
ther's even worse bug with convert entities: if you have to identical items in assembly - start a sketch and want to convert their edges but only by selecting them as select first convert (it converts) but if you select seconde item and do convert it will say that it cant convert identical items - so now you have think what and how you convert.
ps> just found out (on assembly) it's the same thing with offset entities - cant do 1 by 1 of the same components - thats the text i get @"Identical contours in the same sketch are not allowed for this operation". GREAT...
