Is SolveSpace parametric between files? (by wolfv)
This refers the attached screenshot:
The rectangle sketch on the right is unconstrained.
The caliper sketch on left is linked from another file.
When I try to constrain two rectangle points to the caliper, the background goes red and Property Browser says:
SOLVE FAILED! unsolvable constraints

Can the geometry in one file be used constrain the geometry in another file?

From the screenshot, it seems that the rightmost points of the caliper lips do not all lie on a single vertical line. Another problem is that you're adding constraints in the group where the caliper was imported, and so they would only apply to the caliper; all other geometry is treated as immovable.

See the attached archive.
