Edge Flange won't create on correct Edge

Question asked by Philip Blair on Feb 1, 2018

I'm having an issue with the Edge Flange command. Regardless of the flange position, bend allowance, k factor, corner relief, or any other setting I can think of Solidworks is trying to calculate an edge flange on a unselected edge.

 

If I pick one edge, it works just fine!

If I try and pick the mirror edge, Solidworks tries to calculate the edge flange off an unselected edge.

Now I've got plenty of work arounds. I can change the base flange. I can add a second edge flange and it works fine. I can model it as a solid and convert to sheet metal. I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen this before and if you figured out what causes it?
