How to define an organic shape brought in as a svg (hand drawing)

I draw my shapes by hand ( I am a sculpture by trade). All my sketches are undefined as a result, ( which I think is causing trouble later. I do it right and start out with components and then bring in the SVG file ( but I am missing the ability to define the sketch because it is organic and not geometric that the sketch definitions seem to work off of.  

I end up extruding them and skipping this part. But the sketches stay blue instead of a defined black.

Is there a trick to lock the sketch... I know there is a FIX/unFIX on the constraints, but the sketch in the browser still remains with the pencil icon which means it is not defined.   Any clue of how to do this?  Thank you

Hi @patrick_william If you fix all the entities of a sketch, the sketch should show a lock on the sketch icon to let you know it is locked. I wonder if there is some part of your sketch somewhere that didn't get a fix constraint applied? 

 

I did a quick test just to be sure. Here you can see I drew a line and then used the fix constraint on the entire line (start point, line, end point) and the lock shows up for the sketch.

thank you Kevin,

But that is a straight line. what do you for a spline type of line that an organic shape has?

Good morning @patrick_william. I just tried with a spline and got the same result of the locked sketch. 

Do all of your sketch entities turn green when you use the fix constraint on them?
