Sketch creation changes view

I just installed the trial version of Inventor pro, 2013.  I'm having a problem with the view changing on creation of a sketch.  It goes to the home position.  The "Look at sketch plane on sketch creation" is un-ticked in options. 


Click on Component->Create.  Once the Component is created, click 2D Sketch.  View spins to the Home position.  This is really annoying.  I learned Inventor 2010 in school.  I don't remember this ever happening.


If I select a plane from the browser prior to clicking the Create 2D Sketch, the view remains the same as expected.  This is only a problem if you want to create the initial sketch using a face of another part as the sketch plane. Is there an option I'm missing?


Thank you

you haven't missed an option, you found one of the annoyances of Inventor.


The trick is to rotate your view slightly before you start up the sketch command.  That should prevent it from rotating.

Thanks for reporting this issue to us. I can reproduce the case that view returns to home view when create sketch in components environment. I have filed an issue to internal team for investigation.

What ever happened to correcting this annoyance?  IV 2014 still does it.  The lettering on my F5 key has worn away!
