    For years whilst using Inventor, I have sometimes struggled where there is overlapping sketch geometry, especially after using ‘Project Geometry’. Sometimes selecting exactly what you wanted to extrude was tricky, although not impossible.

    In the example below in Inventor 2019, I have multiple loops of sketch geometry and picking the area I want to extrude is not easy.

    Great news! In Inventor 2020 this has been improved greatly and it’s now very easy to select geometries with a great preview.

    An enhancement well needed.
