Is There a Way To Scale Plane Size With Sketch?

I end up with these tiny little planes as the sketch scales up...

    Hi @larry_hawes - the planes stay at the default 150mm, but you can drag the corners to make them bigger.

    @NeilCooke
    Could we have them auto-size to cover the whole part studio?

    @MBartlett21 we could, but personally I found SolidWorks to be annoying when the part shrunk later and the planes still stayed huge! IR if you please...

    Uh yeah I know, it's a PIA is all. And every new plane is 150 mm as well. OK just a little more effort, which of course goes counter to the purpose of a user interface, which should create tools that take less effort, but will deal with it...

    Never experienced having a part shrink later but I guess that would again take more effort to resize the planes...Seems they could default to the sketch size on that plane...

    Curious Neil, are features driven by the personal desires and or experiences of the principals within the company? For example you "personally found SW to be annoying when the part shrunk later...." Does that make this feature request less likely to be implemented because of that/your personal experience?
