Créate new sketch on faces

#1

Hello, is there a way to select a face and start a new sketch on it? Is there a way to select the active sketch?
I am struggling with sketch management as you can see.
Is there some shortcut I am not aware of?
Many thanks,
Jerome

Just start drawing with the pencil. You don’t have to select the “active” sketch plane. You can switch to 2d view by tapping on any face, but you can also sketch in 3d mode.

Hello, thank you for your reply.
Is there a way to manually select which sketch is active?
Or create a new sketch?

The problem I have is as I build some feature from the same reference face, every element of the sketch seem to be grouped into one big group which is quite messy.

For example below I am drawing a circle (red arrow) on a face and previous sketch elements drawn on that face appear (blue arrow) which make it quite tricky to see what we are working with.

I have a feeling that more freedom which how sketches are managed would help greatly but please let me know if I am missing something.

Thanks,
Jerome

Only one image per post so here is the big group I mentioned:

We are working on more advanced sketch grouping functionality, currently all the sketches in a single plane belong to a single group.
