SP1-Sketch goemetry projection fails to update

Data set in CF.

Problem: In Sketch3 the reference lines were projected from Sketch2. The
lines in Sketch2 (tan to .841 rad) were changed from vertical (as seen in
"orig sketch.ipt") after creation of Sketch8 (constraints broken and the lines
reconstrained). The projected lines in Sketch8 are still vertical, though are
no longer tangent to the .841 rad circle, and resist any attempt to update.

Don't know for sure what I did other than made another sketch (4) than
noticed sketch 3 was updating. Go figure! See if it updates for you now?

Thanks for looking, Larry. Don't know for sure, either. I just wiped out the
equivalent of sketch3 in the real file and re-created it (the posted file was
created from a backup of orig). I just hope this is an isolated problem or it
will cause me untold amounts of grief. I can't imagine having to go back and
double check every minute change to a file to verify that the updates carry
through correctly. Just lucky that this was a simple part and the discrepancy
was large enough to stand out like a sore thumb.

Have a good one,
Jeff

Oh, well, not an isolated instance. Maybe only occurs for the type of edit
done. I reproduced the defect in a fresh file also posted to CF (file name
"proj_prob_test01.zip").

The reference line in sk2 was proj from the (now) diagonal line in sk1. After
creating sk2, edited sk1, deleted perp and coincident constraint on lower end,
created a coincident constraint to pull end point over to other vert line.
Noticed in this file that there's a "bad" point at the end of the reference
line.

Jeff,
Where did the H & V reference lines that cross the origin come from? Are
they projected from some other part in an assembly, maybe? I've run into
those bad points as well in a couple of drawings where the associations got
whacked. The pink lines and most of the points would change to normal but
one or two points were hard points and refused any and all advances. I would
have to encircle the point and trim the lines they were attached to free
them for deletion. Most of the time, the points on pink lines can be turned
to normal, but not always.

They are origin axis projections.

Thanks again for looking.
