Master model derived master sketch to be used for more than one feature

Hello,

I hope i'm in the right place for this...
I'm following the master model fundamentals in learning center but I stumbled upon a problem using derived sketches. When I use a derived sketch contour for a feature, the used sketch geometry becomes construction lines. So I can't use it for another feature. I hope i didn't miss something obvious...


According to the learning center this should be possible:

Thank you,

Kristof

    Hi @kristof_onghena,

    By default, the extrude feature will hide the sketch entities once you have used them. In this case, it is probably hiding the "Derived" feature in your feature tree. There is a little "eye" icon if you hover over the feature, clicking this will toggle the visibility of that feature. 

    Don't forget to set your extrude to "Add", and finish selecting the other faces to extrude. You can select entities behind other entities by repeatedly pressing "~" key on your keyboard:
