Did SW change how you use Convert Entities?

Question asked by Sarah Dwight on May 10, 2016

In SW15 while in a sketch I was able to select a block in a separate sketch in the feature tree, then select Convert Entities and it would convert the block.

 

Now in SW16 while in a sketch I select a block in the FeatureTree and click Convert entities and it just opens the tool, nothing is converted.

And when I find it on the FeatureTree in the workspace, I cannot select the block to convert.

It accepts the entire sketch, but not the block.

Did SW change how you can use Convert Entities?

 

This messes up my workflow!

In SW15 I placed 2 or more blocks in one sketch then used the individual blocks to make extrude cuts by using convert entities. This worked awesome - only converting the solid lines, not the construction lines. But now in SW16 I can't do this.

You still cannot cut with a block in SW16 so... I am at a loss as to what to do.
