sketch constraint toolbar - do we have one?

I posted this on the 22nd with no response. Surely someone else has thought
this! (& don't call me Shirley)

I am looking to display the sketch constraints icons full time while I am
sketching.

Is this possible or do I have to click on the single icon for constraints
and then on the desired constraint icon everytime? (2 clicks instead of 1)

Thanks

Chris,
Sean replied to your question. I cut & pasted it below.

Yes, tools/customize, middle tab, 2d sketch constraints.

Don't expect it to stay in place however

The toolbar is there. It's called "2D Sketch Constraints". You can show
it, and dock it anywhere you like (until IV invokes it's Random Interface
Scramble Routine...see "oh for crying out loud (toolbars)" on 11-21).

Toolbars you show this way will be visible all the time, not just in sketch
mode. It's a pain, but for me having this toolbar handy is worth it. To
get to the dialog box for customizing toolbars, right-click on a blank spot
in the toolbar area, and choose customize. Go to the toolbars tab. Pick
the toolbar and select show.

Cheers,
Walt

Can you drag the constraint icons to the panel bar? That way they only show
in sketch mode.

Yeah, that's what I did. Got rid of the icons I never use and added the ones I
use constantly. (to the 2d sketch panel bar)
