It is a PITA to do what you are trying to do and I plan to make it easier in release 8. You are attempting to do what I do a lot as a work around. If you want a point(s) to come through as PickPoints you can find them in SM under the "Misc" tab and then the "PickPoint" tab. The Point Depth lets you set the other side of the material. So, the depth will typically be 0.0 or your material thickness. Then go and select a point or an end of a line or arc and it will put a PickPoint at that location. Please note: if it is a bent part, make sure you are working on the correct flange when you lay it down. The Pickpoint will transfer with the SM part into assembly and you can use it from there to line up more parts or to dimension and so on.

Good Luck
