Create a sketch with line starting points depending on other sketches

I want to draw a line between the two sketches visible on the image below. The line should be in the plane visible. The starting point of the line should be from wherever the top sketch intersects  the plane of the current sketch. The finnish point of the line should be wherever a line of the bottom sketch intersects the current sketch plane.


There is no tooltip appearing that would allow me to quickly "attach" the starting line to the correct position. Is there such an aid, and how do i turn it on?2.jpg1.jpg
