Hi Onshape.

How do I snap to hidden lines in a sketch?

    @ kåre_frandsen , Do you want to snap a line from previous sketch which is hidden?
    In Onshape we are not able to snap a line from previous sketch(which is in "show" mode). To enable the snap you have to project that line and you can make it as construction line.or you can draw required sketch entity and then you can constrain it by applying geometric constrain with previous sketch which is in shown condition.
    Edge of a hidden part will snap if you are sketching in same face.

    You can also project (use) points from previous sketches, such as end points and centers. Sometimes that is all you need to project to get what you want.
