Countersink possible w/ straight holes in WF2?

It seems that if you're not placing a standard hole,
that to get a countersink, you have to go to a sketched hole.
Is this true?
Thanks

It is a possibility, but if you make your hole go "thru all" and pick the screw options, you can get cbores and csinks while turning off threads. As soon as you remove the "thru all" option the hole turns into a tap.

You can make two holes or one revolve

Why the f!ck can't you place a through to next hole and have a tap throughj? This would be extremely useful for taping through the walls of a cylinder. Also, why does it seem that software people have such a hard time putting pipe taps as part of their "standard" libraries?

As Stu said, you can toggle "Adds tapping" (look at the button next to C'SK button) for thru holes.
You can set the config option hole_diameter_override YES, input your dia and toggle Include thread surface Off.
Pay attention to the hole notes you get doing either. Probably not what you will want to display.
(Wonder if it's possible to set up a .hol file for doing plain blind holes and getting associative notes including c'sk, c'bore info? How 'bout a decent looking hole note for standard holes done as above? I've never jumped into the subject.)
You can also "Save a Copy" the 3D Section and place it in a Favorites folder so it's easy to access for re-use.
You might look at copying [ctrl+c, ctrl+v] holes instead of creating new holes and retrieving sections as a way to streamline the process a bit placing multiple holes (place and edit to suit).

UDFs are the way to go for Hole features. Even if your UDF is a Revolved Cut feature instead of an actual Hole feature, you can modify the dimension text of the UDF reference part's Hole(or Revolved Cut) feature dimensions so that when you 'Show' the dimensions of the UDF feature in your target model, the callout will appear exactly as you desire. Also, this type of callout will be parametric and you can drive the size of the feature from the drawing if your processes require 2-D drawings. Most companies have yet to go 'drawingless'. :-)

will give you standard holes for (inch) number, letter and fractional drill diameters.
