Auto-project geometry when adding dimensions or constraints to a sketch
A workplane or face perpendicular to the sketch is automatically projected (without having to use Project Geometry) onto the sketch plane if you dimension or constrain to it with these commands:
- for length or angle (point/line to plane)
- Coincident (point to plane)
- Parallel (line to plane)
- Perpendicular (line to plane)
