Equal constraints between sketch entities should show up on both entities

See attached image above. Sometimes I spend more time than needed to figure out why a line is fully defined, only to find that the relevant constraint is far away from the line

    @Eric_Wong It should but I would need to look. hover should also highlight both.  I will reach out.

    I believe I've also run into this recently, but don't have a good example handy. I agree it should be both places.

    @Evan_Reese I had a chat with Lou and the fix for this was to actually disable "show all constraints" Turns out, hovering over the constraint will correctly show the constraint over both lines, but when you go into "show all constraints" (which I do by default as a carryover from solidworks), the duplicates are hidden to reduce clutter.

    good to know and I bet if I saw the doubles everywhere when I used "show all constraints" I'd probably quickly agree that this is better  :D

    I'm currently going through the Multi-Part Part Studio Exercises and I noticed that if you make several circles equal using the equal constraint. Then if you click on one of the circles and hover over the equal constraint. It only shows one other circle which is using the same constraint. I hope they change it so that all the circles which you constrained are highlighted so that you know which circle uses the 'parent' and which are the 'children'.
