This should be simple, but...

My brain just isn't getting it.

 

I have a base solid shaft with a keyway in it.  I need to shorten the keyway, so I figured move face would do it.  But when I select one of the arced faces on the end of the slot and try to move it the best I can do is move the whole slot.  Seems counter intutive to me,... I didn't select the whole slot, just the one face.    I have tried taking into Fusion, but am even more lost there.    

 

So what am I missing?

Sounds like the Key-Way is done with an iFeature, you should look at the table that makes up the iFeature in the part-browser tree.

Hi Blair.

 

The part is a Base Solid.  No features whatsoever.
