New to Solid works Hole Wizard problem

Moving from Inventor to Solid works.


I've been having problem with removing holes created in the hole wizard. I finally sat down with another person and went thru exactly what I was doing. the only difference between what he did and I did was that I would click the surface to place the hole and then pres [esc], then create geometry and place holes. He placed the first hole or multiple holes and then pressed [esc] and created geometry.


The end result was that in his sketches we could delete points and holes. In my sketches if I deleted points it would react as if there was dangling geometry and remain yellow.


First question would be is whether or not this is intentional or a bug. Second question is whether there is a work around or not. I've got a couple weeks worth of work with hole patterns created this way...redrawing everything just to delete a hole would be onerous at this point if necessary.


Any help would be appreciated.
