    • A sketch entity in the graphics area.

    For features built from multiple sketches (such as lofts and sweeps), right-click the sketch in the FeatureManager design tree.

  2. Select Edit Sketch menu_edit_sketch.gif.
  3. To close the sketch when you are finished editing, right-click in the sketch and select Exit Sketch.
