Cannot edit sketch rectangular pattern - pattern icon not clickable

Hello,

Hello,

 

I now know it is not a good practice to create patterns in a sketch but I have this design that is made that way.

The problem is that when I edit sketch and then try to click the icon to edit the pattern the icon never darkens and I cannot select it. I have tried all possible combinations I can think of including deleting everything and leaving just the sketch and I still cannot choose the edit pattern icon. 

Any help?

 

Thank you,

Yiannis

OK responding to myself but would still like to know why this is happening.

If I click at any corner of any of the rectangles in the design and press delete then the pattern icon becomes selectable. Nothing seems to be deleted either. This is strange, am I doing something wrong or is it a bug?

this looks like a bug.  The sketch constraints are visible, but not selectable.  To fix this, turn off "constraints" in the sketch, and then turn them back on.  I was able to select and edit the pattern after that.

 

"I now know it is not a good practice to create patterns in a sketch" - Yes, I do encourage people to do feature patterns instead, but that is not an absolute rule...  Yes, sketch pattern can be very slow, but when you have a small number of instances (this one has 72 - which is quite a few, but not excessive) and the geometry is simple, this can be a useful technique.  So, just be aware of the downsides of sketch pattern, and you'll be OK.

Thank you very much for the swift response!

Yes indeed that works, I wish I had asked a couple of hours ago.

Most problems are solved here within minutes.

FYI - Did you try changing from the Parameters table?

Amazing support.

Yes that's how I was working on it but I wanted to do major changes that I couldn't do from the functions.

Turning off and on constraints worked and I finished my new design.

Thanks everyone for the help.

I am having a problem that may be related to this thread. I am having difficulty understanding and managing dimensions and constraints, mostly because they don’t seem to be displaying properly. I am running the latest free / personal version of F360 on a Mac Pro with macOS Sonoma 14.1. The capabilities of the computer appear to well exceed the minimum requirements for F360, and I have successfully installed it twice recently.

 

Here’s the problem description: while working in Sketch mode, dimensions and constraint markers appear properly, whether they are automatically or manually created. I can remove manually created constraints. However, once I finish a sketch and then return to it, the dimensions and constraints do not display. Toggling Dimensions or Constraint on or off in the Sketch Palette has no effect. Here is a simple example: in Sketch mode I create two intersecting lines which are initially not perpendicular. I apply a perpendicular constraint, the lines adjust, and the marker appears. I can select it and remove it. I re-apply the perpendicular constraint, the marker re-appears, I finish the sketch, I return to the sketch, but the marker does not display. However, I can tell that the constraint is still active, because I cannot move either of the line segments in a way that would make the two line segments not perpendicular.

 

How can I fix this issue?

 

Thanks for any help you can offer.
