Sketch geometry is over constrained

Here is a new failure mode I haven't come across before, and stopped my project in its tracks.

 

Drawing as simple sketch getting ready to extrude into 3d.

 

Adding just a new 2 point rectangle.

 

Entering 10 and 2 mm's as the constraints, everything looks good.

Then I press enter a couple of times to complete, and instead of a rectangle I get an error message as per

Maybe I am missing the obvious, but shorly there should not be a problem with adding a rectangle...

Note that using a mouse click rather than return to commit the new rectangle worked fine, so at least I am working on.

 

Thanks

I had the same issue several times but didn't note that clicking the mouse could solve it. Will try it the next time it happens. Was driving me nuts already.

Hum after many others tries, it finally worked when i clicked with the mouse, but i can't find the correct process yet. Sometime i click left button and it doesn't work, sometimes it works... :robotlol:

it should always work with the mouse button (at least it did for me so far) but the problem persists while pressing the enter key after entering some values.
