Why's my "Project Cut Edges command" greyed out (Unavailable)

Can anyone tell me why after creating a new sketch I don't have the ability to use "Project Cut Edges" I am following a model from U-Tube called "LED LAMP". Time stamp 1hour 46 mins . I first Isolated the "Handle" I am creating in my assembly. I am creating a sketch on XY Plane. Then slice graphics. So I can Project Cut Edges on to my model. It is greyed out so it is not available. If I open the part file on its own the command is available to use, but not in my assembly.

The only thing I can think of is you did your sketch in the assembly not in the part edit mode. This one will be hard to help unless I was watching you.


But to my guess you did not dbl click on the part to edit within the assembly but started a sketch in the assembly.
