Defaulting to sketch tools.

neale_ashbyneale_ashby Member Posts: 2
When I start a new drawing it is set up with extruding tools and is a hassle to go back to sketch tools to start my drawing off. 
How can I default back to sketch tools showing from the start? All help appreciated!

    It is not possible - you will have to press the Sketch button.

    Welcome to Onshape & the forum @neale_ashby!

    Learning the quick keys will help navigation a lot.  See 'Keyboard shortcuts'.

    for example to help on your question:
    shift s = open new sketch
    shift n = rename open sketch

    Shift+S will quickly get you into a sketch
