you cannot select edge of sheet per se.
place a sketch point on the sheet.
type in values for x,y (0,0) coordinates.
add a "fixed" relation to the point.
add your dimensions from this point.
When using a custom sheet size, the point (0,0) does not line up with the bottom left corner of the sheet. I did a modify and moved my origin at one point. Is it possible to find the corner of the sheet again or do I need to start over with a new sheet?
I would suggest you start over and make the left bottom corner of the sheet at the origion. This would allow you to create your border at the exact offset you intend to. like kenneth mentioned, selecting the edge of a sheet is not permitted.
i did a custom sheet without a hitch.
yes, i would start over.
let me retract that last comment, i would use autocad to create the border and title block text and import it into solidworks.
in reality that's how i did/do my borders.
also, it's much easier to place text precisely in autocad.
