Can I export flat sketches as a drawing?

Hello!  I've only been using Onshape for a few months (off and on) so I only really know the basics.   I am working on a project where I draw out plans, print them out, tape them to a sheet of foam, and cut them out.  Unfortunately I cannot seem to find a on option to export sketches as flat, 2D drawings without first extruding them.  Am I missing something?

    Hi @Catseyeguy !

    You should be able to right click on a sketch in the feature tree and export as DXF or DWG:

    Is this not the format you need?
    Thank you so much!  I usually print with Adobe Acrobat, but I'm pretty sure it supports DWG.  Thanks again, Onshape is great.
