boolean | history in sketch

Hi,

my questions about 2d sketches:

1) Is there a boolean tool inside a single sketch? I have for example two circles and would like to subtract one from the other.

2) For the part studio there is the feature tree. Inside of a sketch, I'm missing a kind of "feature tree" for the operations/tooles happening inside of the sketch. Is there a "sketch feature tree" inside a sketch? That could be realy useful.

Regards,
Sebastian

    1) no - you can use trim, but you cannot remove the shaded area (and there's no need to) - just select the areas you want to use when making a feature like extrude.
    2) no - sketches solve by simultaneous equations so there is no "order" to display.

    2. You can right click the "undo" or "redo" arrows in the top right to show the sequential actions you've taken in a sketch session. This Tech Tip covers that workflow and drag-to-trim
