Create a Config Option To Always Prompt For The Sketcher Ref. Plane

Create a Config Option To Always Prompt For The Sketcher Ref. Plane

Creo now automatically chooses the reference plane for you when you select a sketch plane directly at feature creation or from the main dashboard.  This is a time saver, but frequently causes sketches to be oriented differently than the user desires and can cause unwanted parent child relationships.

While a user can use a specific workflow (selecting define from the dashboard), having a config option that would present the sketch setup dialog to the user every time would help users who desire to control the reference plane to do so.

Create a config option (auto_choose_ref_plane?) to force Creo to allow the user to choose the reference plane regardless of how the user enters the sketch environment.

Maybe it can be combined with this idea: Sketch setup reference - Prefer default reference planes (Datum plane) rather than geometry

auto_choose_ref_plane yes/no/datums_only

Similar ideas, but not quite the same. That's a good idea, as well, but I wouldn't say they should be combined.

If Pro/E insists on picking it's own reference it should at least be confined to on of the initial 3 datums.  That would not create any disastrous parent child relations.
