Auto align view when opening sketch

nicolas_duhamelnicolas_duhamel Member Posts: 5
Hi,

I've looked around but couldn't find a topic on this fonction : is there a way to auto-align the view (i.e. view normal to the sketch plane) when opening a sketch or creating a new sketch?
It's seems obvious, and many other CAD software auto align the view when doing so. But in OnShape, I have to manually click the "views cube" in the top right hand corner.

Thanks for your advices.

    No, but it has been requested. Vote here: https://forum.onshape.com/discussion/8320/option-to-automatically-view-normal-to-new-sketch
    You can also press N on the keyboard which is currently the way to do it.

    Agreed, if you do implement that Improvement request auto normal to new sketch, please give the option to turn that crap OFF!

    Please, make it automatic and make it possible to disable if people don't want. In 2020 we should have the choice, other CAD software have it and it's very convenient !

    I agree this should be a choice. We could argue which is default or not until the cows come home. I'm savvy enough to be able to find and turn that garbage off. So default it on if you want. 🤮

    Alibre auto aligns views on me all the time and it bugs me enough that I'd want Onshape to default to having the feature defaulted off.
