I'm having issues with hole directions. When I wasn't following best practice and sketching on object faces I had no real problems, now I'm sketching on offset datum planes I sometimes have an issue with holes. This is using the Part Design workbench.
If I draw a sketch and pocket, sometimes I need to reverse direction to get the pocket to go in the right direction. If I use the 'Hole' facility there is no option to reverse the hole.
I've just spent a few minutes with a cube trying to draw on the 'upper' face of a datum plane and the 'lower' face.The sketch simply re orientates, the sketch ends up effectively the same and the hole can't be produced. Sometimes it seems I get it right, sometimes I don't.
This is basic stuff and having used Freecad for a few months now I should be able to sort this out, but it seems I've got a logic gap somewhere. Can somebody point the obvious out to me please.
