The circle's center point is based on the origin and defined. I do not know how to fully define the squareish peice with the hole in the center. Could someone help please? Part file attached.
I dimensioned the construction line from the Top Plane, thinking that would finish it, but while that did fully define that line, it didn't the rest of the sketch...
...so I grabbed one of the blue lines and tried to move it (usually a good thing to try; you can always use the Redo button if if gets too distorted). This happened:
I made the two construction lines colinear (1). Did the same with the lines on the side (2 and 3), then made the end points of the short lines coincident with the outside edge of the cylinder (4 and 5), and finally make one of the longer lines parallel with the construction line(6). That finally finished it.

I'm updating Solidworks right now so I can't open your file but it appears that you don't have the angle of the line from the center of the part to the center of the hole on the tab defined. Define that angle and see what you get.
sorry. I did not see the answer.

We were probably both typing at the same time. No problem!
Defined the angle, but it still is blue.
You can pick on the line in question and move it to see what might need to be defined.
Glenn, you the man!
Should we teach Clay how to cheat?
With the sketch active use the indicated dropdown then follow the prompts. While this will help in cases where you are stuck or are in a big hurry, I don't like to use it most of the time as it may not capture your design intent and make things more difficult if you need to change the sketch.
It is easy to do like this.
