|Summary||0003637: At FreeCAD startup; Add options to change the initial camera view and window size in Sketcher.|
|Description||Add options for Sketcher to use when FreeCAD initially starts and no file has been opened.|
To summerize, there are two issues, both with starting a sketch for the first time.
1) This text from a post stated well:
"offer a setting in Preferences --> Display to set the initial view to one of the standard views (top, right, front, left, axonometric...), but change the default from top to axonometric."
2) This text from a post stated well:
" the zoom is waaay to close. The whole width of the screen is about 2 mm. Suitable for designing the tiniest of parts". My screen measures 2.5 x 1.5, very small also.
#1 above could be very helpful to the new user, they would get a much better idea of the 3D workspace.
