Cannot snap to sketch line midpoint (no green dot) 2013

Hi All

Hopefully this is an easy one...

When I use a tool such as 'move'/'select base point' in the sketch environment, I used to be able to select line midpoints.

Is this no longer possible?

 

My constraint options seem to be fine...

 

Recently upgraded to 2013

 

Thanks

Grant

Hello, ggoodey

Thanks for your question, unfortunately, the Mid Point not supported for base point selection so far, please create a contribution line which could snap to the Mid point first to help identify the real point for the base point when you try to move the sketch with Mid point.

I will submit a wish to out internal system for enhancement in the future, thanks a again.
