    Is there a shortcut to add sketch relations suggested by SolidWorks?

    Mitch Kramer

      Whether you are in the drawing or model view, SolidWorks will bold one of the relations in the Add Relations box once you have selected at least 2 lines.
      I assume this is SolidWorks' way of suggesting the most probable/ logical relation to add.  Is there a button I can press to accept the suggestion?  Enter, Tab, Ctrl or Shift don't seem to work.


      As you can see below, I have selected the two lines on the right and left of the shape and SolidWorks has bolded the Parallel relation on the right side of the screen.  There must be a key I can press to use that relation instead of having to mouse over and click it.  I know this sounds trivial but it will drastically speed up my sketching since I have a TON of simple shapes to draw.

       

      Edit: While in a part file this method doens't matter too much since you get the add relation pop-up menu right next to your cursor after selecting multiple lines.  However, while in a drawing file, there is no pop-up menu so this shortcut that I am asking about would really speed things up for me.
