Convert Entities Sketch Tool

The Convert Entities Sketch Tool has been improved to become more consistent with other sketch tools.

  • There is now a Convert Entities PropertyManager.
  • You are no longer required to preselect the correct entity types before starting. You can select entities after opening the PropertyManager.
  • You can select multiple entities for conversion.
  • You can select a face and a number of edges on the internal boundaries of that face, which are transformed into a loop and then converted into sketch entities.
  • In the PropertyManager, you can specify Select Chain, which enables you to convert contiguous sketch entities.
