Hi @Raumik

 

I am a former SW user, I understand your habits.

 

No you cannot draw diagonal lines automatically. You can create them separatelly drawing them.

 

For your better sleep I would suggest to leave you SW habits home and focus to learn SE from scratch.

I was frustrated as you at the begining but every CAD is worth to learn , especially SE - which after my experience is a better ONE.

 

Enjoy !

Agree with what @arekkul said.

  

For just this case, try the Rectangle-Centerlines macro which works in both Draft and Sketcher, 

available from my download page:

http://www.cadvertex.com/download.htm

  

1. It is the third in the Free Apps list.

2. A video is also available next to the download.

3. The download zip also contains an image which you can use on a button on the ribbon.

4. A detailed tutorial on how the program was coded is also available here:

5. Scroll down to the 3rd topic under MakerFaire section.

  

6. If you need, here's a link to the steps on how to add the macro to a ribbon button using the provided image for the button in Solid Edge:

Hope you like the macro and also find it useful.

Finally I could not resist posting the UI of the program:

Isin't it more feature rich than the one in SolidWorks ?
