I need to move an outline that I have drawn to the quadrant of a circle that I've drawn, so that I can then do a revolve to create my object.
Is Solidworks incapable of moving things to snap points? I can't figure out how.
There are no pictures to see your example of what you have already tried
Select the sketch you want to move, navigate to "tools", "sketch tools". Then select "modify". This should allow you to move the entire sketch as needed.
So you want to move an entire sketch from one area to another area?
1) can you share the part? If not, that's ok.
2) can you share a screen shot of the following:
a) your feature tree showing us the sketch you want to move.
b) the exact problem that you are encountering.
The reason that I ask these, is that the problem could be all sorts of different things. Just trying to narrow it down.
Edit: Or do what Jeff said. LOL

You have posted in the 2D drawings section of the forum.
Is this a modeling question or is it a drawing question?
Attach the file(s) and remove all doubt.
Are you familiar with geometry Relations like Coincident?
If you're still in the active sketch you should be able to select all the sketch elements, right-click, and choose "Move". That will allow you to move all selected sketch entities together without them moving in relation to each other. If that isn't what you need, then as others have said, better information will get you better answers.
