Can't sketch, selected plane just stays highlighted

I am trying to sketch, but the selected plane just stays highlighted.  Nothing happens.  Is there a setting that needs to be enabled?  I was able to create parts in the past.

    HI @eduardo_rodriguez688 - once a plane is selected you have to press the sketch button or press the sketch button first then select the plane. If you are selecting a face of a solid, is it definitely a planar face? You can find all sketching tutorials here: https://learn.onshape.com
