We take your suggestions very seriously as they help to shape Fusion 360, so please share your ideas and vote for new features / enhancements you would like to see. Here are a few from this week.
Ability to draft from an edge as pivot (even curved ones).
It would be useful to format the sketch text settings more like how “text boxes” are formatted in things like Adobe and Microsoft Products.
