How to get to the sketching view after clicking on the plane?
I recently installed the new Solid Edge ST6. I used the older version of solid edge and it had a Sketch button. After clicking the sketch button i just needed to click on the plane and the view would change to the sketch view. However in the new solid edge i cannot find the sketch button and the line, circle, arc commands have to be used in the isometric view. I found a sketch view button but it doesn't seem to be working. I attached two pictures below, Please help me in this. Thank you.
You need to go to Tools (search in any tab, i dont remember the name of the tab exactly). You will find "Synchronous" radio button ticked. Instead of that, select "Ordered" and now if you click on Sketch and select appropriate plane, the plane will orient to sketch view.
Yeah if you go to the Ordered environment, you will see the "Sketch: button you are used to. Go to Tools>Model tab and check the Ordered dot. also you can go to Solid Edge Options on the Application button and go to Helpers in the left column. Change to start parts and sheet metal in the ordered environment
Thank you Stefan, it worked. But is there a way that when i click on a button and then directly click on any plane that i want to sketch? I mean a button like sketch, after clicking it i directly need to select the plane and the view changes. Thank you.
No you cant get any button for directly go to sketch plane in "Synchronous" enviroment. but if you use "Ordered" (Tradational) enviroment the u can get this function as u say. just click sketch or extrude or whatever u want then simply click on plane u want to use u can dirctly transfer to selected plane's sketch view.

If you read Solid Edge's own propaganda, the synchronous modelling has its own limitations (not meant for production yet). If you are in production, stick with the "ordered" or traditional format. You can make it your default .par via preferences.
