assembly sketch tools greyed out as FamilyOfAssemblies

Is there a setting somewhere that needs changed or is dissabling of sketches and features in a FOA expected behavior?

 

I was working on an old assemnbly that has a half dozen sketches and decided to try using FOA during the development stages for different concepts.  Then I try to edit a sketch or create a new one and the menus relating to sketching are all greyed out.  Couldn't figure it out, made a new asm and all sketch menus are fine.  Thought to self, maybe?  changed new asm to family of assemnblies and poof, all sketch related icons on the ribbon turn grey. 

 

Are sketches not supported in FOA files?

You have to toggle on/off "Apply edits to all members".

 

With "Apply edits to all members" off then Sketch is disabled:

Thank you! I had kept that off as I only wanted to edit the active member. I will be toggling that on and off a bunch I suppose.
