Is there a shortcut way you can select an entire sketch pattern from outside the sketch it's contained in? I'm trying to use convert entities on the entire pattern, but it seems like I can only select the individual chains/lines one at a time. Is there nothing linking the pattern together that I can use outside the sketch to select it?
You can select the prior sketch from the model tree and convert entity to get everything in that sketch including the sketch patterns. If there's a lot of other things in the prior sketch in addition to the sketch pattern you wish to convert, you'll have some deleting to do.
