2 Point rectangle as default

Hi

I never use the center rectangle and I always am selecting it by mistake. Is there a way to make the 2 point

the default.

Also, I know one can do a hatch pattern but can you also fill with solid color.

I must admit older versions frustrated me. This new version is just wonderful.!!!!!!

 

PS. Don`t know if this is possible but smart sketch has a feature that you can pick from a list of previously

entered dimensions. Does Solid Edge have this functionality. It makes entering reoccurring values fast.

Regards Barry

Hi

I did find the solid fill feature. I tried customizing the ribbon and removing the by center rectangle. That didn`t have any effect.

Hi there @bgolash,

 

For the Rectangle aspect....there is a handy function that may help you. Got to....Application button > Settings > Options, then on the "Helpers" tab, go to the Command Buttons group to check the box for "Last used command (in droplists) stays on top"

Then, for your solid color hatch fill......on the ribbon bar for the Hatch command, there is an option on there for it.

Hi Sean

I don`t think I`d ever have found that "use last command". That is valuable info for me.

Much appreciated.

@bgolash Be aware that when you restart Solid Edge, the default command comes to the top again.


Thanks,

Hi Ken [@Grundey],

 

I'm actually seeing this "switch" persist between Soid Edge restarts.

...further, it even persists after a full system reboot.
