Let me first apologize if this topic has been either covered, or offensively silly.
With that out of the way, i am annoyed with the fact that every time i need to make a sketch on one of the base planes (front/top/right) i have to scroll all the way to the top of the tree to select one of those planes. If i have a big model with lots of features it becomes time consuming. Ideally, i would like an icon that i can place on the quick access toolbar thing (the one you get to by pressing s on the keyboard) for every plane... or rather for "sketch on a plane". Or perhaps a keyboard shortcut? (which i can then map to a mouse gesture). As of right now, in solidworks 2012, i see no way of doing that. In fact, i see no other alternative whatsover to scrolling to the top of the tree to get to those planes.
Soo.... thoughts? I can't be the only one that is bothered by this. Thanks!!
