Hello everyone, I am a new member so I apologize if this post is in a wrong place. So I am working on this part but I did something wrong and now it's reversed in terms of hollow and solid parts. Now if I use extrude boss it will extrude the hollow parts instead. How do I reverse it?

SW will let you enter a negative number in a bilateraltolerance such that you end up with something like 1.000 +.0005/+.0015 Is this type of bilatral tolerance valid per any standard? Itypically tweak the model dimension to bring one limit or the otherto zero so that the dimension looks like: 1.0005 +.0015/-0 Jim S.SolidworksDrawings And Detailing

I have sketch lines into a drawing and I have saved different parts of the drawing into blocks. When I edit a block I can change the color of the lines but when I get out of the block and go to the normal display the lines turn black again. How do I display the sketch lines in the intended color? SolidworksDrawings And Detailing
