I believe this is the config option you are looking for.
0, 1, 2
0—Does not create the dimensioning references automatically.
1—Automatically adds orientation references as dimensioning references.
2—Automatically creates two dimensioning references.
Setting to 0 should force you to have to pick all your references, every time.
We are on Creo2 M090
Hope this helps...Brian
In Reply to Doug Schaefer:
When creating a sketch, Creo will sometimes automatically select a reference plane. Many times that isn't the plane I want to use, so I always go back and check it.
Is there a config option to force Creo to prompt me for a reference plane? I searched the config editor and came up empty.
I believe that config option only affects sketcher references, not the orientation reference plane.
I don't believe there is a way to force prompting for the orientation reference plane.

It seems that functionality disappeared when they dropped wildfire. We used to be promped for the orientation reference / plane prior to entering the sketcher. I prefer to control the orientation. This "new" way eliminates 1 selection click. Was that PTC thought? I wonder if PTC could enable this "old" method for us old guys who like to discipline their sketches.
