    Loft help says  "Nested loops in profiles are currently not supported".

    However, you can do this with two loft commands.  See the gif attached.

    Would you not be better just extruding the 1st sketch?
    Alternatively you could use the sweep command....see attached

    I started with an extrude, but then I wanted a draft on the outside but not the inside. The original model where I first saw the issue had a smaller outer circle in the second sketch.
    That's how I'm solving it right now, extruding the whole cylinder (no hole) with draft, then extrude remove the hole without draft.

    But I'm mostly looking to learn, so although I'm not blocked by this issue, I'd like to know what's going on: am I doing it wrong and Onshape failing to do this is legitimate (why?), or is it an Onshape limitation?
