Flange Relief Issue

Hi

 

As always, SW is not as easy as it should be when it come to pretty much anything related to development . In this particular case, Flanges. I am trying to add a flange to an edge of an extruded cut. The flange appears but there is no relief. I have attempt to change pretty much every setting going but there is no change. If I edit the flange sketch and make it smaller, the relief appears (although it is not correct). I tried the same in Inventor. 3 clicks and done. The correct procedure with end result should be a flange that is smaller than the cut out. The relief gap should be across the full length of the flange. In real life manufacturing, you cannot cut anything without losing some material. If I have a 30mm gap and I want a flange tab with a relief of 1mm, my flange should be 28mm leaving 1mm each side of the flange. SW on the other hand seems to think the impossible can be done......

 

What is the correct process to add the correct relief to a flange?

 

Thanks
