freehand moving arc segment in sketch

kev_keegkev_keeg Member Posts: 6 ✭✭
I've created an arc segment in sketch. Added an offset line and closed the ends. I want to move the whole thing - not resize or reshape it.
When I select all the members (2 arc segments, 2 straight lines and the center point) and try to drag/move them - the thing resizes.
How can I move it to a different place in the sketch w/o resizing it?
thank you

    just tried again with newly entered segment - still same behavior - no constraints. model is called "picker" - it is public. segment is in the upper LHS.

    Make sure that there aren't any constraints locking a point in position (like a coincident constraint or something like that). You should be able to move things around, but if one point is locked down, it'll scale the entities like you describe.

    If you are referring to a model, please include its URL. That makes it easier to find.

    The Transform Sketch tool is probably what you need:
