Summary0003637: At FreeCAD startup; Add options to change the initial camera view and window size in Sketcher.
DescriptionAdd options for Sketcher to use when FreeCAD initially starts and no file has been opened.

https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=31000

To summerize, there are two issues, both with starting a sketch for the first time.
1) This text from a post stated well:
"offer a setting in Preferences --> Display to set the initial view to one of the standard views (top, right, front, left, axonometric...), but change the default from top to axonometric."

2) This text from a post stated well:
" the zoom is waaay to close. The whole width of the screen is about 2 mm. Suitable for designing the tiniest of parts". My screen measures 2.5 x 1.5, very small also.

#1 above could be very helpful to the new user, they would get a much better idea of the 3D workspace.
Thanks

The first line of the description should say "Add options for Sketcher to use when FreeCAD initially starts and no file has been opened.
