It bugs me too, although I do wonder what my problem is...

Thanks for the very clear drawing.

Hi,

This is a model showing what I had in mind when I said you could advantageously break down your sketch into smaller steps. It assumes that your intent was to pad your original sketch to some defined thickness.

I was able to recreate this model from scratch in less than 10 minutes. I am sure that it took you much more time than that to create and constrain your sketch, with all the construction geometry to define the placement of the circles.

Don't hesitate to ask questions.

Hope this helps,

Norm

I recreated the sketch using your excellent drawing, only to experience the exact same issue. :x

Does anyone know what might be causing this? Very infuriating.

It's impossible to say without more information that would be provided by a backtrace. See Debugging

What about other files? Is it specifically this sketch? Why did you not have a look at the file I posted? As I already wrote your method is inefficient.

Other files appear to work fine. However I suspect this issue will occur on newly created sketches as it has already happened twice.

I was creating the sketch in such an inefficient way in order to export it as a .dwg file, but I have taken a look at your (better) method, and will try to export a .dwg from that.

I may try to compile a debugging build of FreeCAD later.

What "editing" did you try to do?

I had no problem modifying, augmenting or pad/Export_to_(dot_STL) your Sketch.

I simply click 'edit sketch' and the program crashes.
