And also now have further understanding of the different ‘workbenches’ available.
I spent a long time trying to complete step one while in ‘sketch’ mode as the ‘Translate’ function is available in this mode but with less functionality and then realised I should be in ‘Generative Shape Design’ mode as you stated above.
