@chrisb has it. When I need to do something tricky, I add construction geometry in 3D, then include it as Source for the View.
You can always hide the construction lines with the line decorator.
I have attached a screenshot of the sketch used to drive the geometry where I have a tangent construction line. I am using this to constrain the distance to the line. This constraint distance is what I am trying to expose in the techdraw drawing.
I must admit I am a bit clueless on how to proceed with your suggestion. I think instead of using a construction line, I think I would need to use external geometry in the sketch, but there is no external geometry to reference in this case.
The construction line done has a point on circle constraint as well, but I believe because it is a point on a circle, there is no edge at this point which appears in the geometry.
If you could provide any suggestions for how I should proceed it would be much appreciated.
