Re: Creating a hole from a "Bolts" created SHS

You need to drag and drop the extruded section into the body, this will create a base feature that can be pocketed.
You will also need to modify your sketch since it has open vertices....

Re: Naming operating modes in Sketcher WB

I think of the hover feature as 'Pre-selection highlighting', It ensures one has the correct element under the cursor before selection.

As to the other issue I think Chrisb's suggestion of constraint-first/element-first is as clear as crystal.

You can also move sphere after pocket, right click context menu, not sure if this will resolve the p...

Re: Floating slices in a cylinder.

Re: Reusing a pattern in multiple separate parts?

Use a master sketch workflow, you can create the sketch inside or outside of a body and then use carbon copy or shape-binders to bring the geometry to where its required.
