Viewing dangling sketch entities.

Question asked by Christopher Figgatt on May 13, 2010

Often, at times during the modeling process I will roll back several features to make a change and then roll all of the following features to the end.  Many times when I do this I get a "sketch error" advising me that I have dangling sketch entities or dimensions.  The problem that I often have is seeing the dangling entities.  I've changed the color from brown to red but on more than one occasion wasn't able to see the dangling entity because is was "hiding" behind constrained sketch geometry (a black line).  There has been instances where I had to progressively delete and undelete sketch geometry to determine if a dangling entity was hiding behind.  Is this poor geometry / constraint creation on my part or am I missing a easier way to locate and correct dangling entities?  Thanks in advance for the help!
