Project from other plane

Jason_HoltJason_Holt Member Posts: 4 PRO
I've been in this situation several times:

I draw a sketch on plane A.  Then I make plane B that's tilted from plane A.  I draw a sketch on plane B and I want it centered directly above (normal) to plane A.  If I "use" the sketch from plane A, it'll project it along the normal for plane B, not plane A.  The only way I can find to project from plane A is to extrude it and then intersect.  Could we have a "project from source plane" feature instead?

    What's the desired end goal you are trying to accomplish? Do you have any screenshots of what you are aiming to do? Maybe also sharing a document link so we can take a look as well. Whenever I am trying to do something like create a bracket with an offset or angle to it I will do an extrude intersect as my final action to get the result I'm looking for.
