    I am sure this error means something to the programmers. It is indecipherable to a rookie

    The new Constraint Sketcher is a work in progress - however there are easy workarounds...

    This is the current problem as noted below.

    However, it is possible to capture a sketch before the it becomes a face. Use 'ctrl c' to copy to clipboard as noted below.

    Then activate the part to have the same sketch, select face, key K (shortcut) for sketch. Ctrl V and sketch is duplicated relative to the xy grid as shown below

    There are other ways around this ( involving saving/ closing files etc, but still updating successfully ), but unless you need to have a single component in a single file etc then i usually work with multiple parts / components all within a single file. Using cut and paste, anything can be moved anywhere i believe.

     

    DSM can work in another way without the new v5 Constraints: Set this in options. Doing this WILL ALLOW the use of multiple open windows , the copy / paste of sketch entities / anything etc. between open files.

    Thanks. At least I did find a real issue. I will review your answer more fully. I appreciate your help. One thing I did find as a work around the Sketch issue is in the component part file, use the SPLIT function

    I had to move the orange faces to the opposite side of the part , Split allowed me to had a "line" and the I could move the surfaces across the end.

    Yes, split bodies using planes / faces ( a powerful command often under used ), copy and paste parts / faces, move faces / parts whilst holding down ctrl key makes a copy etc all very useful commands.

    THIS IS IMPORTANT:

    if you want to make an opposite of something, like in your above Dovetail Tenon, there is no real necessity of making another sketch as there is the function 'Combine' which is much faster. In this we can add together, take away / subtract parts from one another or determine volume intersection ( these are known as ' Boolean operations' ) with options to keep or not the cutter in subtracting ( cutting - saw icon) procedure.

    I did stumble (bumble??) along and found this little Icon:

    And! whaddayahknow! it allows independent objects ( Solid Extrudes) to be created that can be used to modify existing components. I pulled a hole through 2 separate parts at once. I am liking this program!!!!!!!!!!!!
