There's already a feature request on the bug tracker. But until a developer volunteers to implement it, this won't get done. The sketcher has not been worked on for most of the past year.

Creating a sketch with 2500 constrained hexagons is totally insane. Even in commercial programs with mature solvers sketchers it would be an almost impossible task because at some point the solver would totally bog down. There's too much stuff to solve.
- Are your hexagons the same size, or are they of different sizes (and how many sizes)?
- Do you have any kind of repeating pattern?
- What's your end game? What will you use these hexagons for? Will you produce a 3D shape?
If all you need is 2D then I recommend you work in a dedicated 2D CAD program like LibreCAD or DraftSight.
