Huh... is that really the only way to edit a sketch pattern?
Thinking about it, that is the only way I have been able to do it... I just figured I was missing something that I never bothered to figure it out. I agree very obscure yet essential.
I will have to think about it as I go about my day tomorrow to see if there are any other workflows that require such a method.
Using the help within SWX, the search function in the forums and using John Stoltzfus's excel spreadsheets Forum SEARCH RESULTS - Over 160,000 Search Returns - Excel (3/5/2019) Added - Benchmark Search (you can create your own, too), will find most things. But as I have stated elsewhere, sometimes I don't know the correct term for what I'm looking to find. That's when I have trouble.

I was just working with a sketch pattern, and had to go in and adjust some of the parameters. As I was doing this - clicking on the "pattern" relation icon (after showing relations of course), then selecting "pattern" from the relation menu and RMB for "edit" , I realized this must be one of the most obscure sequences for a heavily used feature.
I'm not understanding the sequence you describe here. What do you mean by selecting "pattern" from the relation menu?
To edit sketch patterns, you can simply go to any sketch entity of the seed of the pattern or entity created by the pattern and choose "Edit Linear Pattern" (Or Edit Circular Pattern if it is circular).
This is described in this help topic:
Which I found by doing this search for "edit sketch pattern" in the help:
It is the second hit in the search results.
Well, That's certainly a lot easier than what I was doing. Certainly less obscure. Thanks Jim!
YES. Thanks Sarah for illustrating the workflow I was describing. I was too lazy to go through all the screen shots.
I will never do that workflow again and instead use Jim's RMB method.
Is this what you are looking for,
When typing an email in outlook, or using word, (it also should work in other programs)
If you typed in either caps or not, by using SHIFT + F3 it will toggle either caps on or off
in programs like Word….It will toggle, caps on, caps off and caps first letter of sentence.
Do a single select not a double to edit text.
then do the SHIFT +F3, POOF
Maybe I'm just easy to please but that just blows my mind. Thanks Frank!
This is a very good tip about how to change to Upper Case. It does not seem to be bidirectional like it is in Word. As you said, in Word it will toggle upper/lower or lower/upper. In SW notes it does change from lower to upper but not upper to lower. Not a problem because I can't see reason to do this.
Thanks Frank Krockenberger!
