How come Auto Rotate doe not work when sketching like the attached option says?
There is discussion about it here as new features in SW2018.
Add your comments & I'm sure Priya Dalmia will review your thoughts.
Can you post a video clip here to show it doesn't work as expected
No, but I can talk you through it. I want to sketch a line so: 1)select "sketch tab" 2)select "line" 3) select the plane I want to sketch on. Result: The sketcher is active but the model does not rotate to the plane I have selected.
yeah.. you're right ... it doesn't rotate normal to the plane as the way you add a line to a sketch !!!!
With the workflow you described it doesn't work for me either. If you'll select the plane first, then the Line command, it will work.
select the plane first, then the Line
Agreed as it's the way most used
1)select "sketch tab" 2)select "line" 3) select the plane
seems to be extra steps ...
It would only work when you create a new sketch (as the option suggest).
Yes and "Normal To" is one of my most used icons so it's on my top list
If you have to select it, it is not automatic as the option states.
How do you create an old sketch?
I believe Deepak meant it works when you create a new sketch, not edit old sketch
Un-real. So if you are in feature mode and you want to sketch a line, selecting "sketch" "Line" is totally the wrong way of doing it.
Jeez.. I can't believe I did not know that. Must be a new way of thinking that I didn't pick up on!
My vote: Make it work every way including editing sketch's.
Well the behavior is correct per the option. The normal to view rotation would be done on sketch creation which means you should have a plane/face/planar surface pre-selected before clicking on sketch or sketch entities.
Please raise an Enhancement Request via your VAR.
I guess I strongly disagree with the work flow then. I expect those who have never ran any other CAD programs do not
see the flaw I see in this work flow. There are plenty of other Enhancements out there that should take priority over this though, so I will not add another one to the list. After all, they only do 10 per year correct (SW World top 10 list)?

I agree with you that view should rotate irrespective of the work flow. Do share your thoughts on that 2018 discussion.
Thanks Kevin. That's what I'm talking about. Guess I won't see it till we go to 2018...which could be the year 2019 or 2020!
OK. One more thing. Why the heck doesn't it work for the Hole Wizard?
IMO it should rotate normal even when editing a sketch. What a pain in the ass.
