Well, considering that creating a sketcher axis and immediately RMB'ing and selecting 'Axis of Revolution' (while still in the axis tool) doesn't seem to work, I'd say the flyout. 😛 I'm always having to go back into the sketch because I thought I had selected it, but hadn't.
If you create the axis, exit the axis tool, select the axis again and then RMB and select 'Axis of Revolution', it seems to work fine. Picking the right axis in the first place seems easier, and seems logical.

That's odd, because what you describe as "doesn't seem to work" is exactly what I do and works fine for me which is why I asked the questions. When I first go in the sketcher I right click and select centerline; then I create a centerline; when I'm done the centerline automatically stays highlighted so I right click again and select axis of revolution. But I'm on WF5, M090, so maybe M140 acts differently.
I agree Dave. I have only had to assign the axis of revolution a handful of times in 15+ years. If you create only ONE geometry centerline, Pro (WF3 and previous) assumes it is the axis of revolution. If you create more than one geometry centerline, it assumes the first one you created is the axis of revolution. This is the only situation where I have actually had to reassign the axis. (when it was actually the second instance that was the axis of revolution).
