There is a built-in feature in SolidWorks that will fully define your sketch for you. While this is not always the best tool to use as it can make your dimensions and relations of your sketch complicated. In turn making it hard to change or modify things down the road. It can be a powerful tool if this is not important or for defining splines or other complex geometry.
