    Change sketch line to 'end' (stop drawing) on second mouse click

    Jacob Murray

      Sorry about the title being a bit unclear but I don't know how to explain my situation clearly. At the moment when using Solidworks, when I draw a line using sketch I like to click on the beginning and then move my mouse to the end point and click to draw it. At this point though the line continues to be drawn from that end point but I just want it to finish there. I know if I hold the mouse button when drawing a line I can achieve this but it doesn't feel natural and I often have to let go of the mouse button to zoom out or in to the point where I want the line to end.

       

      So I am wondering if I can change these two functions over somehow in the settings and have the line end when I click on the second point?
