How To Suppress Sketch Relations in SOLIDWORKS

I ran into this recently via a customer request.  They wanted to suppress all sketch relations on certain sketches.

First, go to the Sketch tab in the Command Manager, click on the Display/Delete Relations.

Display relations1

Then go to the Relations dialogue box and Shift + select all your sketch relations, then check the Suppress check box.

Notice below how the suppressed relations are been grayed out.

Note: If you have configurations, you can specify which configuration(s) your relations will now be suppressed.  See below:

Display relations4abcde

Check you later!
