Bolt Connector Creation + Series Bolt

I am new to simulation. I am having problems creating a bolt connector.


QTN 1) In this first printscreen, I need some clarifications on which edge/face should I be selecting for the 2 entries in the red circle. In other words, I would like to know what do the 2 fields mean. In particular, the first entry I currently chose the inner circle of the CSK hole. I am not sure if I should choose the outer hole of the CSK hole instead.

QTN 2) Referring to the printscreen below, I am trying to generate a bolt series and again I am not sure what should I be selecting for the field in red circle.

QTN 3) What is the difference between using bolt connector and a fixture? Am I right to say that bolt connector is a special kind of fixture?


Thanks for any help!
