why in sketch mode it won't highlight lines and edges? it only highlight when not in sketch mode.
it is really hard to work like this. i can only draw a line and the make relations between edges.
dint work. i tried the other check boxes as well (highlight all edges...., dynamic highlight.....).
i am using Solidworks 2014.
nope...non of these check box works. tried them all.
I would have thought that the "Dynamic highlight from graphics view" box would have fixed the problem, but you said you tried that. Have you re-booted your computer since this started?
yes i tried. didnt work.
any other suggestions? it is really frustrating
Is there any chance that you have applied a filter while in sketch mode that isn't allowing you to select edges? Just checked myself and it seems that SW remembers filters applied within sketch mode even if you clear filters when not in Sketch mode. When you next go into sketch mode press F6 and this while clear all filters and then see if you can select an edge.
thanks but it still didn't work. i am in sketch mode and everything is fine. it highlights everything. the second i press to draw a line or a rectangular i cant draw it on a known edge. i have to draw it somewhere and then relate between edges.
OK, so i went to system options and pressed reset to all settings and it worked!
thanks for the help
