When I am drawing things (Assembly) in SolidWorks, on some parts which I work on, I can select the edge of a circle and then measure the dimension to a line, like shown below:
But the problem is that on some others I simply can't. It won't allow me to select the Edge of a cirlce when I hold down the SHIFT key. If I "insist" and drag the measurement to an edge, it jumps to the other end, like shown below:
I think I'm doing everything right: Doubleclick Sketch to edit it, select a line, then hold SHIFT and then try selecting the edge of a circle. I already searched on the internet around, but no one had really a solution for it. The closest I came was this.
Why does it work on some projects and on some others it don't?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
EDIT: I'm using SolidWork 2016 Premium x64 (SP 0.0)
