Hi, Folks, I've got a bit of an odd issue, maybe someone can shed some light because I don't recall this being an issue for me before


I use the Sketch Picture feature for basically all my work and use the scale tool to align to a real-world reference of size, what I'm finding now however is once I've finished a design and notice I have the reference measurement wrong i can go back in to edit the sketch then the sketch picture (toggling enable scale tool on and off allows me to drag the base handle so I can move around the whole scale line, but I absolutely can not select the end pointer to actually change it, experienced in 208 and 2019 SP5


the real head-scratcher is once in a blue moon for no reason I can hover and the cursor changes and i can use the handle but if I move my camera or touch ANYTHING else (like zoom in to get closer) that's it, gone and the feature is gone in the wind again.


it's a real cruddy problem for me as basically everything I make hinges from this tool hinges and once I need to rescale I'm now having to just bin the entire SW files and start from scratch which somewhat defeats the entire point of parametric design.


yes, I could use the scale tool but as I model I often use the hole tool or use other absolute sizes I don't really want to be messing with basically has anyone experienced this and do you have a solution, besides throwing away hours of work ><


Attached video to show the issue, perhaps someone has an idea!
