Constraints

Could you please turn off automatic showing of constraints unless wanted or needed. You already have a show constraints box to turn them on. But the popping up of constraints when you're just trying to sketch is getting really annoying. Especially when they constantly getting in the way of trying to pic objects. It's time consuming thus reducing productivity. I think this item should be a high priority. It really gets in the way of getting things done in an appropriate time.

    Hi Terry, if constraints are getting in the way, perhaps your sketches are too complex? Sketches should be kept simple. Just a thought.

    This is the answer WE get every time. You have a show constraints button, why can't you just turn them off until we decide we want to see them. And no my sketches are not to complex. I'm sketch boards for walls. No other program I know has this many constraints popping up anyhow. If anything they only show the basics, vertical, horizontal, tangent and so forth. It can't be that hard to just turn them off.

    But how many boards in each sketch? If it’s a real problem please create an improvement request in the category on the right.
