When adding mates or mate points the point I want to use it not next to my mouse and when I move off that entity, the point disappears. How do I select it?

    there are two way for this
    1) hold the shift key, all  mate points will stay visible regardless of mouse position. 
    2) Right click on mouse then click two times on required mate point.

    The second option is really just an update of Onshape.  When you just click a face, we pick the middle point by default. I seeded this question before we launched.  Thanks for posting..
