    Drag Vertex

    Matt Kadman

      Ok, so I'm sure this is a dumb question:


      for some reason when im sketching and draw a line I can no longer drag the vertex point around, I can move the line but not modify the vertex points. When I draw a rectangle and try to drag one of the edges it seperates from the retangle body. In the sketch settings the "detach segment on drag" is not activated.

          Can you activate that option, drag lines in the sketch and then deactivate that option. Also restart SW or your machine and check.

            Tools Sketch Settings > Overide Dims on Drag Move  maybe or the Sketch Auto Solve mode being deactivated might be issuesome. I've had problems with SolidWorks thinking I want to dettach in similar situations. Maybe Shift being held down or some other modifier it could cause issues so check your kb buttons.
