Array in sketchmode, cant modify.

Sketchmode: I array som holes in a circular pattern and creates tangent
lines between them, now I want to trim away parts of the patterned circles,
but I can`t. Neither can I extrude only the "desired" "shape" nor change the
array pattern ?

I`ll try to post the file so you can see, I want this to result in some sort
of a knob/handle.

Regards,
Jørgen

...and why there are a bunch of text and symbols in my completely empty
(besides the file) post in customer-files I don`t know...

I think that's just the nature of patterned sketch entities. You can rmb a
patterned entity and edit the pattern.

I've almost always had better luck with patterned features than patterned
sketch components (see reply in CF). They crashed 5 a lot and apparently are
still prone to some problems as shown in CF "sketch pattern / constraints
(IV6SP1)".

I'm not sure why some ipt's show up embedded in the message window, but if you
will zip the file it doesn't happen (good practice anyway). Also, if you will
roll the EOP up before saving it makes the file a bit smaller.
