    Can't sketch on certain planes or views????

    Dave Bear

      I've tried searching the forum for something similar but can't find anything. Perhaps I'm not using the correct keywords or tags. I'm designing what I consider to be a basic linch pin. It has a 'thumb tab' for easy insertion and removal. I thought I'd start my part with the thumb tab but when I attempt to put it in any orientation whereby I can sketch it to scallop it out to make it easy to grip in the real world I am unable to sketch in the graphics area. What have I done wrong? Have I chosen the wrong plane to start with?

      I have attached the actual part here in the post (if you want to see what I've actually done) as well as included some screen shots to show my intentions.
