Remove Sketch Notification Box

Hi Yah, 

Is there any chance the developers can work on removing/hiding the Sketch Notification box or the ability to autohide once you start sketching...it gets so annoying having it lap over the modelling area and the only way to close it or remove it is to stop sketching.

Thanks in advance  :)

    Hi @charlie_riley083

    are you aware you can move any of the dialog boxes by grabbing the top of box?  Not hiding as you ask but does get them out of way (or closer which is nice when there is a lot of back and forth with dialog - saves mouse miles...

    Hi Yah Bruce,
    thanks for the reply but all that's doing is moving it from one corner to another  haaa haaaa, would be nice to hide it for some more screen space

    Then to accept, not moving cursor to the green arrow, RMB and click on "confirm sketch".

    The other trick to improve graphics area, hit command - on your keyboard to reduce everything. (ctrl - on a pc). I do this a lot and make it so I can barely read the text. Older cad systems lacking these zoom capabilities are crap.

    Seems like you need to zoom out a couple of times.

    Also remember the feature tree & sketch boxes move. If you get them close to the window's edge, they attach there and move with window if it's resized.

    I  typically don't move'm around.
