inserted a new sketch the view would automatically snap normal to the
selected plane or face.
This was quite frustrating, since I typically work in oddly rotated
and zoomed in views which had to be reset after each new sketch
shifted the viewpoint in an undesirable way.
I've seen this happen in 2004 before, but today the "snap normal"
behavior only happens to the first sketch inserted into an otherwise
blank part file. I'm glad to NOT be forced into head-on orthographic
views, but am afraid to be forced back into "normalcy" at random.
If anyone knows what may be responsible for this inconsistency, I'd
certainly be interested in hearing about the cause or means to control
