I want to place this hole on the top edge of the part, right at the midpoint.  The option for Midpoint is selected in Intellisketch.  When I move the hole toward the edge, the only option I get i Point-on.  How do I place the hole right at the midpoint?

KEYBOARD SHORTCUT "M"

 

M.I.C.E

 

"M" = Midpoint

"I" =Intersection

"C" = Center

"E" = Endpoint

 

#1 Solid Edge Tip/Trick of all time IMO

Might be useful to point out another way: Select keypoints in indicated button.

DUH,   I'm glad this is a "COMMUNITY" of help, never counting on any one of us.  It amazes me the simplest of things like this that "we" take for granted.  I never would have suggested this...

 

But, it is most probably the more correct of answers.

works in draft too to place dimension quickluy and accurately.

 

Also not that in some commands you need to hit "K" on the keyboard to invoke "K"eypoint shortcuts.

"need to hit "K" on the keyboard to invoke "K"eypoint shortcuts."

See? Another thing I didn't know. Not that there aren't many.
