    I don't have 2005 installed anymore but I'm sure I've always been able
    to do this.

    I have an assembly level sketch which contains 1 arc. I have a
    cylindrical part with a ref. geometry point at each end. Normally I
    can create a mate between the point and the sketch arc. But in 2006
    sp1 it wont let me, all choices remain ghosted. WTF!

  2. Do you happen to have the option turned on that prohibits external refs?

    Hi Wayne,

    No - but I'm still thinking I may have missed some new option. I did a
    little more testing and found that I can't mate a sketch point from one
    part to a edge or sketch entity of any other part no matter how I try.
    I used a work around in this case and have moved on (extruded the arc
    to a surface, mated point to surface face and used a perp plane to
    control height.)
