Troubleshooting: Can't Select Reference Geometry


I can't select a reference geometry. When I mouse over the reference geometry, it isn't highlighted in yellow, indicating that it's not selectable.

There are two possible scenarios:

Cause 1

You tried to select a solid or non-planar surface. You can only select planar surfaces as reference geometry.

Remedy 1

  1. At the bottom of the application window, click Select Surfaces .
  2. Select a planar surface. Planar surfaces are highlighted in yellow when you mouse over them.
    Now you can select the planar surface as your reference geometry.

Cause 2

Draft Analysis is turned on.

Remedy 2

  1. Deselect Draft Analysis.
  2. Select the reference geometry.
    Now you can turn on Draft Analysis again.
