When sketching on a part the automatic driven dimension feature is no longer working correctly and my sketches become over defined. Is there a setting somewhere that controls this?
Select OPTIONS - SKETCHS and then check the "Set driven by default" box.
Tools > Options > see below. Starting with SW2012 that box un-checks itself occasionally for some users (me included) so don't be surprised if you need to do this every so often.
