Mates automatically deleted - FRUSTRATING

Question asked by Craig Gilbreath on Sep 21, 2017

I'm running SW2017 SP4.1.

When I add a mate, often times the first mate will drag the part off the screen - nothing new there. So the problem is, when I grab the part to drag it near the other component I want to mate it to, it deletes the mate I just added. This is extremely frustrating.

Has anyone else had this issue? 

Solutions?

See below. I am mating the axis together, then mating the faces of the duct. (See image)

 

I've attached a simple assembly with components that have a history of giving me problems.
