Hi there,


You need to create your full size geometry on the "2D Model" sheet [this may not be active by default] This can be activated manually by clicking on the 





You'll then find the tools you need on your Sketching tab, there is a Drawing Views panel.


Normally "Sheet 1" [+ additional sheets you create] are your "Working" sheets, these are where you place your model views & then your annotations [dimentions, notes, etc] using the "2D Model" & "Detail" functions




Switch back & forth between using the Sheet tab at the lower left of the graphics window.
