Auto-rotate view in sketches

Hi there,

I want to gather your input on the system behavior for sketches. There is a setting under Tools > Options > System Options > Sketch > “Auto-rotate view normal to sketch plane on sketch creation”.  If this option is selected, it rotates the view to be normal to the sketch plane whenever you open a sketch on a plane.  When you exit the sketch, it brings you back to your original view. This option does not work if you edit an existing sketch. I'm looking into making the behavior consistent for new and existing sketches across all different scenarios.


If this option is selected and you exit the sketch, what would be your preference?

             Option 1: When I exit sketch mode, bring the model back to my original view.

Option 2: When I exit sketch mode, do not change the view.

Option 3: Bring to original view only if I cancelled the sketch command.
