Caution! Sketching in "in-context" mode and "using" edge lines of 3D elements from the assembly.
When working on a sketch and "using" (copying) 3D elements edges while in "In-Context" mode,
certain 3D elements from the assembly may appear and remain "glued" to the sketch (painted dark purple) even if no more in the in-context mode.
In that case - closed lines enclosing an area, elsewhere on the sketch, that should define a surface (should be painted gray) may not be treated as surface and the gray inside will not be shown (neither will the "solid" function of EXTRUDE be available).
Deleting - on the sketch - all the purple 3D "glued" elements and their "used" edge lines, cured the problem.
