Double click to edit sketch and feature dimensions in 3D area/view

Hi all!

I want it to be easier to edit my existing sketches and features, like the depth of an extrude and sketch dimensions, in the 3D view/area.

Double clicking on a sketch entity, in the 3D view, should bring me right into edit sketch mode, so I can edit dimensions, like when double clicking the sketch in the tree. Now you have to double click entity and then double click a dimension to get into edit sketch mode. Not a big deal but it is an extra double-click :wink:

Depth etc. of features should also be editable by double-clicking the geometry in the 3D area. Sketch dimensions appear, but not the extrude depth, in the case of an extrude. 

You're nearly there. Just need to pull out the putter and tap the ball into the hole :smile:

    What you are looking for is served today with the right-mouse button. The right-mouse button opens up a context menu that presents different options depending on what the mouse cursor if hovered over. Hovering over a sketch? Then you will be able to edit it from this context menu. Hovering over a face? Then you may have a few options of editing the extrude used to create it or the sketch used for the profile.

    @MBartlett21 @michael3424 Sure, I posted this in general by mistake. My intention was an improvement request :smiley:

    @bradley_sauln Thanks for the input!
