Click the midpoint (green dot will appear) of the line.

Oooops! Mea Culpa! I forgot to mention that I am using Inventor 2015. :notworthy:

I opened your file in 2015.

The image I posted above is from 2015.

The image you posted is from the other end of the Ribbon than the image I posted.

Of course if you want to create a sketch point need to be on the Create tab as shown in my image.

I recommend you sign up for a class.

Thanks JD

 

Unfortunately, Classes are beyond my financial reach. Perhaps they won't be, on day, if I can get a grip on Inventor.

You cannot understand how much your help is appreciated.

I am sure there are many who echo that comment.

So, did you figure it out?

 

The Point Format tool at the other end of the ribbon is for toggling a Point to a Center Point or a Center Point to a Point. Try it! Select the endpoint of a line and then click that tool or select a Center Point and click that tool. At some point (pun intended) as I continue the Tutorial - we will see the point of toggling the style of a point.

I am up to my armpits in something else at the moment.

I'll get back to you.
