When I go to the sketch mode and want to sketch on a plane that intersects the mesh, I nicely see the blue and green lines that fit the cross section of the mesh. However I am not able to snap to these lines. As far as I know this should be possible though. I can also not project them to the sketch surface.nSo basically it nicely shows the mesh curves, but I can not interact with them. nwhat am I doing wrong, as the manual says I should be able to snap to these lines.nThanks in advance for your reply.n
