Sketch 3 is under defined. I've tried every dimension and relation I could think of, but the line on top is still blue. I also tried clicking and dragging to see if it would move
You might have encountered a bug.
In fact your sketch is OVER-defined - not under-defined. Your dimension of 12.40 in. is redundant as the distance between the two vertical lines are already given by the on-edge relations.
If you delete this dimension you can fully define the sketch by adding a vertical dimension as expected. And BTW you can not recreate the 12.40 in. dimension without over-defining the sketch as it should.
Thomas Voetmann is right this is some bug dimension of12.40" definitely over defining the sketch.
If you delete dimension 12.40" and add .59" will be OK
Not quite sure how you got it into that state....shouldn't happen. If you delete the 12.40 dimension & try to re-add it you instantly get a warning about over defining the sketch.
I have a similar problem.
Nothing I do seems to get rid of the in the Feature Tree.
I looked at the sketch & it appears to be fully defined, I certainly couldn't move anything around by dragging sketch geometry.
If you edit the sketch, right click on empty space & select fully define sketch, make sure relations are checked & click OK. 16 new relations get added, not sure where & the sketch is fully defined.
If you mean Sketch1, then there is a point in the center which I deleted and added two relation and all was good
How did you find that out?
I tried looking for pink bits, I tried showing all the relations and looking for anything dodgy, I tried 'Check Sketch For Feature' and I could find no clue.
I'm quite prepared to accept my incompetence in this case, but I would like to know how I could have solved it myself. I'm not great with fault-finding, either with part features or with mates in assemblies. I often find it is easier to delete and start again than to find what is wrong.
I can't figure out a workflow for finding and fixing this kind of error.
And '-' signs in the Feature Tree really wind me up...
I neeeeed to fix them.

John, to be true this was shot in the dark otherwise your sketch was OK. Again I just deleted the relation for that point and added them back, it was good. So definitely something for your VAR to look into.
Well spotted Deepak Gupta .
The reason it is underdefined is because you have not defined the location of the blue line. The 12.40 dimension simply defines it's length, which is already defined by the fact that the endpoints of the blue line are coincident with the edges of the block on the left & right. The .59 dimension that Tateos Tvapanyan added is the one needed to fully define the sketch.
When you click on it to drag it (with the 12.40 dimension deleted) did it move? Because it does for me.
Use tool called "Fully defined Sketch", see the photo. It will solve this automatically. Powerful and useful tool.
I was going to suggest that fully define sketch tool as well, I use it when I cant find what is missing on a under defined sketch.
Then I hit undo and add my own dim/rela, rarely do I stick with the results from that tool.

I agree with this 100%! Using the fully define sketch tool is a serious crutch and should only be used to either a) very quickly act to keep things from moving in the sketch (and this should be ONLY a temporary thing), or b) used to help identify what things are still undefined, just as you are doing.
