The "missing" possibility to create (parts of¹, in) more than one Body from a single sketch?
That's not an issue, but we might consider mentioning it in the follow-up of the forum rules.
Hmm, could somebody point out a HOWTO on this matter?
I've been looking all over the place and it seems to that;
either what worked a while back has been disabled, or I haven't found the right keywords to find a still relevant discussion thread.
hi, to be clear, you are talking about a deliberate design limitation in PartDesign, not Sketcher itself. The fact that it "sort of" worked at one time was a "bug" in that version that has long since been fixed.
A "Body" is designed to be a single contiguous solid. If you want to use PartDesign WB and you want separate solids, you create them in separate Bodies. This is a deliberate design intention of PartDesign, which uses Sketcher WB but is not a limitation of Sketcher WB itself, you could for example use a sketch in Part WB, Arch WB or any other workbench where its functionality is relevant and then the single solid requirement may or may not be there as its all to do with the design of the WB using the sketch and not Sketcher WB itself. Note of course that I am talking about a single contiguous solid requirement, not a feature of a single contiguous solid. So you can attach a sketch to a face of a solid in PartDesign that you then Pad which contains multiple separate features like an array of knobs for example, so long as they all intersect the solid from the previous set.
