Yellow constraints indicate that SW will automatically create the constraint. White constraints mean that it will snap to where the constraint would be, but won't actually create that constraint.
Why ask why? You'll drive yourself nuts expecting the software to be predictable. I've wondered these things also, and in the end it didn't get me anywhere. The sketcher is the one part of the software that everybody uses, and you'd think at least they could work the bugs or inconsistencies out of it, but they can't/won't.
not trying to contradict, but the midpoint is hilited in yellow, but the line did not snap to it, and why snap to whre a constraint would be, if you're not going to snap to it......
Mat, i hear ya!! why ask why, you say? well, mainly i keep hoping on these 'topics' that i am a dufus and someone will show me the correct way, and maybe i can sacve some time and money... but alas, as you say "that the way it is,fella. keep moving!!!"
my comment about the sketch point on an end point of a line really epitomizes the whole scene...
