    Angry My parts will fully constrain but wont let me extrude the object if I use seperate lines.

    I am drawing in inventor 2012. If I draw a circle or a rectangle it wll let me extrude, but if I draw seperate lines or
    try to add an arch it will constrain but when I go to extrude it it won't allow me too extrude the area of the object. Diagnosis says

    "Open loop found in this profile. Use Close Loop or use Edit Sketch and project geometry, add sketch geometry, and/or drag the loop endpoints to close the loop."

    and I am not sure what to do to fix it. Is it a setting I accidently turned on or off or am I skipping something somewhere.
    I am a student and have been working on this for a week and can't figure it out on myown.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated in advance thanks again !!!

    My guess is that you turned off Constraint Persistance.
    But all is guessing without the file.
    Attach the *.ipt file here and remove all doubt.
