Ellipse trim bug?

File in CF.

What I'm trying to do is set up a sketch with ellipse and radial lines for
projection to new sketches which will be elliptical segments. The radials are
projected, an ellipse sketched using the radials and then trimmed. When
trimmed the ellipse segment goes red (can't solve constraints?).

Thanks,
Jeff

I'm probably not interpreting what you are doing correctly, but I patterned
some radial lines, made an ellipse on one and trimmed it. Offset a couple of
workplanes and projected successive lines to them drawing and trimming the
ellipses and didn't see any errors. If you want to post what it is you're
trying to do exactly, I could see what I misunderstood.

Oh ... it was already there. I didn't get the same result. Mine trimmed
okay. See CF.

I opened your file in the RTM build, and the ellipse segment was green.
