Watch me as I try to follow the tutorial from the perspective of an entriely new FreeCAD user.
That was actually quite interesting. Some of the things that you stumbled on could be improved and some are things that just have to be learned. I've heard it said that "intuitive" really means "familiar." So I have to ask, since you mention "other CAD software," what has formed some of your expectations? OnShape perhaps?
I assume you are not looking for an explanation of the behavior you encountered, and are just pointing out issues? Regardless, there is two things that bugged me that I have to mention.
The first is that the toolbars can be reorganized so that they are not all collapsed.
Secondly, always read the sketch solver messages at the top of the task panel when working on a sketch.
