Hi Rich,

I did not read carefully enough the last part of your message. About
"beforesketchstarted" I think it's better to be called "sketchcreated".
"beforexxxx" usually is associated with the option to cancel by return

>From 2.11 sketch is usually created before starting, and is a problem not
knowing when it starts (first point). In this we agree.

Best regards,
