I just recently upgraded to the the 2012 solidworks and so far I am experiencing more and more problems. I needed to edit a bolt pattern on a housing and when I go to edit the sketch it won't let me select any of the lines. I cannot dimensions them or view any relations on them since they cannot be selected. Next to my cursor is a dimension symbol but I dont have smart dimension or any for of dimension selected.

I import a lot of sketches into SW via autocad, and then I simply window all the sketch items and fully define by "fixing". However, I cannot select endpoints via window. I have to manually shift click all of them and select fix. Is there a way to select these endpoints in a sketch via selection windows or some other method faster than manually clicking?

Please see the attached picture to see what I'm looking for. I know that through multiple steps of first extruding a surface or solid then intersecting these features with plane 1 this can be done. But isn't there a simpler way? I can't seem to find one.

I'm trying to convert our company logo (which seems to be the main draw to this add-on from what I've seen in other post). I've searched the tutorials and they all seem to show this program working easy-peasy. But when I select part of our logo in simple black and white, I get this junk:

I am trying to do an offset line of an entity on a conical surface. This entity is a circle projected on the surface from a plane, but when I try to select the entity for create the offset, it doesn't work. I attach an image with an example. If anyone knows how to do it, I will thank you very much.

I am designing a fixture for holding an object to be presented to a technician a certain way. I started with three sketches in the assembly, each sketch containing a single construction line with a value for X, Y & Z offsets from the origin of the object. The termination point of each line has a plane coincident to that point and parallel to whatever plane is perpendicular to the line.

As the title says, suddenly the sketch points such as centerpoint or the middle of something, when I cross over it with my mouse, don't show up anymore and I can't find the setting. Anyone? Already tried that but didn't work but I found the solution.

Floating Sketch Blocks I'm learning more about sketch blocks and they seems to be something that I was looking for. I have many custom shapes that I use in many parts, but now I'm converting all these shapes to sketch blocks and save to file.

How do I hide the grid when working on a Layout Sketch? Don't use a Layout Sketch. Use a standard sketch on whichever plane is appropriate instead.

I wonder if there is a smart/ simple way to create a spline in 3D sketch exactly following a intersection line without using the convert features. or is there a way to use the convert feature to create the spline line and delete one of the features afterwards. for example, i use convert feature to create a intersection line of two planes and want to keep the line but delete all the planes. Thanks in advance.

SW has point in sketch, but this point can be used for hole creation or as additional point or as mating point or as .... The same situation with construction line, it can be used as axis of revolution, as symmetry line, as line for some reference plane or for mating.

Let me preface this post with a profound thank you. As a beginner-to-intermediate SW user, I make frequent reference to these forums and can usually resolve my issues without posting. So again, thank you to everyone for sharing your knowledge!
